Product Details


Praise for Minus Me:
“[A] bright and poignant story.”

“Medwed’s appealing characters make Minus Me a thoughtful story about the promises that family members make to one another, about what it truly means to live, and about what people hope to pass on after they die.”
Foreword Reviews

“Impressively original, deftly crafted, emotionally elegant, and downright comedic.”
Midwest Book Review

“Medwed’s lovely novel of marriage, motherhood, love and loss is so…A timely reminder that in the worst of times, we sometimes rediscover the very best of ourselves.” 
—Jodi Picoult, New York Times bestselling author of A Spark of Light

“A profoundly warm and intimate novel about what it means to try to manage the tumult in our life—and the life of a loved one…Sprightly and absolutely delightful with an ending readers will cherish.”
—Caroline Leavitt, New York Times bestselling author of Pictures of You

“A delightful romp of a novel….Surely this is the feel good book of the year!
—Ann Hood, New York Times bestselling author of The Book That Matters Most

Minus Me is a charming and hopeful story about love and destiny…about the family you have and the family you choose in the mouth-watering milieu of a gourmet sandwich shop…A perfect read to escape the world.” 
—Miriam Parker, author of The Shortest Way Home

“So much to love! Minus Me is vintage Medwed: smart, funny-quirky, and so very satisfying.”
—Elinor Lipman, author of Good Riddance and On Turpentine Lane

“Medwed writes with heart and charm, warmth and wisdom. She knows how to evoke laughter and tears, balance the joys and the challenges of the complicated relationships she describes, and bring to life an entire Maine town.”
—Stephen McCauley, author of My Ex-Life

“Witty and charming from start to finish.”
—Jill McCorkle, New York Times bestselling author of Hieroglyphics

Praise for How Elizabeth Barrett Browning Saved My Life:
“An adventure to which Jane Austen might have raised a celebratory glass of port…A whole lot of fun.”

“Charming and funny without being precious, Abby’s a thoroughly believable character.” 
Library Journal, starred review

“Don’t be deceived by Medwed’s light touch and irrepressible sense of humor… a canny writer with a distinctive voice.” 
Boston Globe

Praise for Of Men and Their Mothers:
“The mother-in-law…Does she still have any power left after decades of pummeling? In Mameve Medwed’s new novel, ‘Of Men and Their Mothers,’ she certainly does. Ina Pollack, Maisie Grey’s loathsome ex-mother-in-law, can raise the reader’s pulse with a single phone call.”
