Praise for Bitch: In Praise of Difficult Women
"One of the more honest, insightful and witty books on the subject of women to have come along in a while."
-Karen Lehrman, New York Times Book Review
"The Courtney Love of letters–an extraordinarily thought-provoking, absorbing, wise, often poignant read. You can disagree with Wurtzel, but at least she always has a passionate point of view."
-Dana Kennedy, Entertainment Weekly
"It’s got the preposterous energy of a great, drunken tantrum, and a voluptuous, sprawling style, with lots of good, zinging jokes."
-Mary Gaitskill, The Village Voice Literary Supplement
Praise for Prozac Nation:
"Sparkling, luminescent prose…by turns wrenching and comical, self-indulgent and self-aware, Prozac Nation possesses the raw candor of Joan Didion’s essays, the irritating emotional exhibitionism of Sylvia Plath’s Bell Jar, the wry, dark humor of a Bob Dylan song…a powerful portrait of one girl’s journey through the purgatory of depression and back."
-Michiko Kakutani, New York Times
"Thoughtful…Very brave…like all provocateurs, she poses questions which make you think."
-Julia Phillips, Vanity Fair
"Sylvia Plath with the ego of Madonna."
–The New York Times Book Review
