Awards, Reviews & Star Ratings

NZ Review Praise for Anna Quindlen [Quindlen] serves up generous portions of her wise, commonsensical, irresistibly quotable take on life. . . . What Nora Ephron does for body image and Anne Lamott for spiritual neuroses, Quindlen achieves on the home front. --NPR, about Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake A panopticon of life in this decade, sure to be valuable to future social historians. She touches on life, love, home, family, work, men, women, children and issues large and small. --Chicago Tribune, about Living Out Loud A splendid collection . . . eloquent, powerful, compassionate and droll . . . There is considerable variety in the subjects she addresses. --The Plain Dealer, about Thinking Out Loud
UK Review Bertrams Star Rating: 2 stars (out of 5)
