Editorial Reviews

Linda Robinson
Hackenbush is smart, savvy, sexy and sensible. She can carefully skim ‘along the safer part of the truth,’ and knows it’s ‘never good to owe anybody too much.’ Mayerson’s book chronicles a life like any other, without the falling down, whiny, “why me” frailties wedged in to move a typical plot along. Dr. Hackenbush can carry a tune and a novel, thank you very much, and I’m glad to know her.
A Amitty
A delightful, fast-paced romp through money – and the lack of it – and ignorant men who need to be put in their place. And Hackenbush does it with style.

Ms. Mayerson’s writing is contemporary, offbeat and engaging. I’ve never listened to jazz but my interest has been sparked. Mable Hackenbush is my new hero!
