“A passionate Zolaesque j’accuse.”—John Leonard, Harper’s

“In this brief, potent memoir, Paretsky proves as sharp and straight-shooting as V. I. Warshawski.”—Publishers Weekly

“The journey from love-starved childhood to adult celebrity, and the essential role of literature in the metamorphosis, makes for a powerful and anguishing kind of autobiography.”—Chicago Tribune

“This poignant and compelling personal testimony explains both the influences which made her a writer and the kind of writer she became … both a testimony and a polemic; it is one woman’s voice among many, but it is a powerful one.”—P D James, Spectator

“Written with graceful economy, Writing in an Age of Silence is an urgent cry for dissent and a powerful reminder that liberties taken for granted may someday not be granted at all.”—Booklist
