Editorial Reviews

Boston Herald

A books that brings a most refreshing message home with substance as well as style...Quindlen integrates memories of her childhood and observations of adulthood in such a way that make her just the sort of friend you wish you'd kept in touch with. -- Boston Herald

Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
"In this collection of syndicated columns, based in the New York Times and called 'Life in the 30s,' Quindlen gives ample evidence of why her reflections about herself, the progress of her life and feelings, resonate in a large readership,'' observed PW. "There is universal appeal in her experiences of the contemporary world, which she covers with elan and insight.'' (Nov.)
Library Journal
From "I Am a Catholic'' to "I Don't Like That Nightgown,'' this collection of Quindlen's "Life in the 30s'' columns from the New York Times is a very personal book. More than 60 columns offer a "thirty-somethingesque'' view of life and portray Quindlen in her various roles. If readers occasionally flinch at the private subject matter, they must also applaud Quindlen's writing style and journalistic grace. (On Nautilus equipment: "it . . . bears such a remarkable resemblance to a delivery room apparatus that every time I get into it I think someone is going to yell "push!' and I will have another baby.'') Quindlen is expecting her third child this year, and, as she plans to take a break from writing, this collection is all the more important.

I've loved Anna Quindlen's writing style for years; this fantastic and diverse group of essays is well worth exploring for those who have only read her novels. Here, Ms. Quindlen explores numerous controversial topics while explaining her own personal convictions. I recommend this book enthusiastically and without reservation!

I agree. It happens often, so ya, definitely not a surprise. People make their own decisions, I guess. Striking.
