Product Details


“Reading Caldwell is like sitting down over tea and cookies with a close friend, only to realize several hours later that together you’ve devoured the whole plateful and dinnertime has come and gone.”NPR

“Caldwell is a charming and affable writer, proud yet self-deprecating, thoughtful and witty. Her story, while often painful, is never didactic, preachy or judgmental. . . . God willing, she will write to us again.”—Star Tribune

“Deeply affecting.”—Goop

“She’s just a great memoirist and storyteller.”The Boston Globe

“Caldwell’s writing, as always, is lush and lyrical, her honesty both captivating and refreshing, qualities that shine anew with a fierce and vibrant luminescence.”Booklist (starred review)

“A glistening reflection on how the women’s movement profoundly influenced the Pulitzer Prize winner’s life . . . Caldwell’s fourth memoir sings. It’s a song for the ages, but it sounds especially resonant in the #MeToo era.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
