"Astonishes in its honesty. . . . What greater gift can a memoir bring than a self revealed in all its grubby particulars?"
-Rebecca Pepper Sinkler, The Washington Post Book World
"A diary of a day that encapsulates the memories, reflections, and yearnings of a lifetime as gracefully as a Fabergé egg captures spring sunlight in its tiny interior."
"For Grumbach, living is an adventure on the magic carpet ride of memory, reverie, and imagination. Life in a Day affirms the ripples of meaning which can emanate out of simple rituals, happenings, and activities."
-Frederic A. Brussat, Body Mind Spirit
"[Life in a Day] illuminates the way memory has woven itself into the fabric of a rich life. . . . To spend a day with [Grumbach] is rewarding."
-Patricia Roth Schwartz, Lambda Book Report
"[A] wise and lovely little book."
-Barbara Holliday, Detroit Free Press
"This is a profoundly optimistic book: a validation of the strength and the tranquility to be found within the confines of the human mind."
-Publishers Weekly, starred review
