Product Details


One of the Best Books of the Year: The Stranger and Kirkus Reviews

“Not only one of my favorite feminist books, but one of my favorite books of the last few years, period. . . . Exquisite. . . . So sharp and real and revelatory. . . .  I loved it so, so much.” —Cheryl Strayed

“Sentence for sentence, a more pleasure-yielding midlife memoir is hard to think of.” —The Atlantic
“Dederer is not only a brilliant author, but an honest and brave one.” —Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

“Dederer is an excellent writer who spins her prose with the casual grace and easy humor of a seasoned professional.” —The New York Times Book Review

“Ferociously honest.” —The Seattle Times
“This knowing and original memoir abounds with intelligence, wit, earned nostalgia, and an impressive degree of understanding about no less than being female and becoming a person.” —Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings
“Affecting and . . . darkly amusing.” —The Washington Post

“The most surprising and subversive memoir I’ve read in years.” —Stephanie Danler, author of Sweetbitter
“What emerges, in the course of this vivid, hilarious, daring self-portrait of a book, is a person who has achieved clarity about her own contradictions, or at least has figured out how to use those contradictions as an excuse to bring lively writing into the world. . . . The memoir is practically a master class in narrative technique.” —The Stranger
