“[Salamon’s] fresh reporting . . . gives the book a live, romping air, very much keeping with its subject . . . Wendy and the Lost Boys reads more like a novel than a biography.” 

“Excellent…Salamon’s voice is like that of a Wasserstein character, a late-night girlfriend who tells you the truth, but confidentially, and sideways.” — THE NEW YORKER

“Top-notch…a penetrating biography. The book, less a literary reckoning with Wasserstein’s legacy than a frank character study, is superbly paced. [T]he work unfolds with an alacrity that had me fearing the end not just because it was such a tartly compelling read but because it’s still so hard to accept a theatrical world without Wasserstein around to make it seem so much more magical.”  — THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

“Intriguing” — PEOPLE Magazine

“Engaging new biographyTHE ECONOMIST

Julie Salamon is a helluva journalist and her Wendy and the Lost Boys: The Uncommon Life of Wendy Wasserstein is a helluva story.” — NEW YORK DAILY NEWS

“Perceptive and empathetic, but also gently unsparing—a superbly nuanced portrait”       — KIRKUS (starred review)
