Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
"Sisters is probably the most competitive relationship within the family, but once sisters are grown, it becomes the strongest relationship," observed anthropologist Margaret Mead. Soon after Saline and Wohlmoth's Sisters was first published in September 1994, it became a word-of-mouth bestseller. So resilient was its popularity that it stayed on the New York Times list for more than a year. Now writer Saline and photographer Wohlmoth have collaborated on a tenth anniversary edition of this reader-made classic.
Publishers Weekly - Publisher's Weekly
Saline (Straight Talk) interviews 36 sets of sisters ranging from preschoolers to octogenarians. Some are well known (tennis star Chris Evert and sisters Jeanne and Clare; model Christy Turlington and sisters Erin and Kelly; Coretta Scott King and her sister Edythe). Others (Donna, Debbie and Shirley Masiejczyk, each a police officer; Catherine and Mary Glackin, both nuns) are also worth knowing. This exploration of a special relationship is made even more affecting by the black-and-white photographs of the sisters taken by Pulitzer Prize-winning photojournalist Wohlmuth.

    My sisters and I loved it

    This is a must for anyone with sisters. My 2 sisters and I sat down together to laugh and cry over this book. Wonderful and touching, it gets to the root of the special relationship that exists only between sisters.
