"Following Lili Wright as she floats from one seaside town to another is an invitation to break from our stodgy existences and experiment with adventure in our own lives. A must read, for not only the thirty-something crowd but those of us way beyond."
– Joan Anderson, author of A Year by the Sea and An Unfinished Marriage
"With ribald candor, Lili Wright charts the treacherous territory between the desire for emotional connection and the safety of cavalier independence. Learning to Float is an incredibly smart, brave, and honest book about a woman trying to come to her senses."
–Ken Foster, author of The Kind I’m Likely to Get
"The joy of this book is the combination of fearless self-confrontation and the freedom of the open road. Lili Wright did what so many women dream of: She drove away from her relationships, had adventures, and lived to tell the tale in a funny, honest, and fascinating book."–Haven Kimmel, author of A Girl Named Zippy and The Solace of Leaving Early
“Romantic confusion has never been as much fun as this trip down the east coast in Lili Wright’s Mazda. Learning to Float is witty, touching, endlessly charming, and as human as a face in a snapshot.”–Luc Sante author of Low Life
