Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
Wolf (A Place Like Any Other) is one of those writers who, instead of flicking a bug off the screen of her computer, recognizes its metaphorical potential and invites the creature into her writing. She does that over and again in this collection of soul musings focused on healing. Whether she is reflecting on the surroundings of her backyard screen house or pondering a bad day with Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder symptoms, Wolf is a master at converting the ordinary into the extraordinary. Drawing from a rich vocabulary to express herself, she explores each subject like a miner panning for gold, extracting the essence of a lesson or truth, then presenting it almost matter-of-factly. Whether she is writing about a personal betrayal, the aftermath of her abusive marriage or how a friend's life was shattered by the Oklahoma City bombing, Wolf invites self-reflection. Although she gazes inwardly, she does not stay there, always moving on to some new place in her spiritual journey. For example, in "Scene from a Mall," Wolf gets lost in comparing her own interior muddle with the slick facades of the shoppers below as she ascends an escalator. By the time she reaches the top, she realizes envy has bitten her and she emerges from her reverie with a new esteem for those she is watching. Wolf's background is Christian, but readers of all faiths, especially those in tune with the spiritual path, will find her writings insightful. (Oct.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.
Library Journal
Canadian essayist Wolf posts one brief spiritual meditation on the Anglican Sabbath Blessings web site each weekend. Her earlier books, A Place Like Any Other and Sabbath Blessings, offered humorous, highly original musings on theology in the events of everyday life. Her new book differs in tone from her previous work, for it contains searing pieces based on her memories of spousal abuse and her journey to recovery. The dragon of the title is her husband, and the angels are the spirits she calls to assist in her hope's rebirth. The pain of her marriage has left its heavy mark on her spirit, but here she describes how the grief process led to her eventual acceptance of the life she once led as victim in the relationship. Because of their emotional power, these pieces are best read singly. Religious readers who prefer unsentimental devotions, as well as nondenominational audiences, will find Wolf's book disturbing but moving. Joyce Smothers, Monmouth Cty. Lib., Manalapan, NJ Wright, J. Robert. Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    Molly Wolf's subject matter is reality. She writes her observations of everything from an escalator ride through a shopping mall, to paying the household bills, to dealing with the aftershocks of post-traumatic stress disorder brought on by an abusive marriage,to the devastation of the Oklahoma City bombing with courage and hope. She is neither a Pollyanna nor a nihilist. Her eyes are wide-open and what she sees is the ordinary transformed by the backlighting of God's grace. Her essays confront and examine the inner doubts and fears that challenge every thinking person struggling with faith. She is a superb stylist and story teller. If you are looking for a religious book, this isn't it. If you are longing for unflinching spiritual honesty in everyday life, you have found your book.
