“Judy Feiffer has put an intriguing new spin on the romantic triangle in this taut and winning novel.”–Hilma Wolitzer
“MY PASSIONATE MOTHER is the most passionate love story I have read in years. It will shock and awe you and you may never feel the same about mothers and daughters again. Read it and gasp.”–David Brown
“A beautiful book set in an island off the New England coast; ‘a microcosm of the world,’ written in strong, spare New England prose. Deftly Feiffer weaves the wildness of its seasons’ changes and the perils of the weather, into a narrative of a girl/woman and two men locked in a love triangle always on the verge of explosion which–strangest of all–evolves into a quadrangle. She delivers to us with unfailing originality an edge of the seat page turner.”–Elaine Dundy
