“Mairs is an iconoclastic thinker; hers is an unusually original book and a great pleasure to read.” —Publishers Weekly

“This is a provocative, honest, and revealing portrayal of how one writer deals with rejection and who is determined to fully despite multiple sclerosis.” —Library Journal

“A small miracle of honesty mediated by dignity and humor.” —Francine Prose, New York Newsday

” [A] rich and wise collection about becoming a writer (and a woman)…grounded in a wry and candid account of a life that would have most others hanging on the ropes…hers is a singular voice we can all attend to.” —Faye Moskowitz, Washington Post Book World

“It is fascinating to watch Nancy Mairs grappling with theoretical issues in a way that makes them personal and immediate. As in her previous work, Mairs shows the courage and tenacity and honesty of a true personal essayist.” —Philip Lopate, author of Two Marriages
