Review quote

"Jong lays it on the line with these potent essays about women's lives, writing with acuity, gutsiness, and humor."--" Booklist""The eclecticism of the collection is its real pleasure?nutty nuggets of politics, soft-centered personal reflections, melting confections of fantasy?meditations on literary themes."--" Wall Street Journal""Jong at her very best--a kind of master class in real life?she combines memoir and essay in a completely readable, hilariously opinionated, brilliantly well-informed book."-- Susan Cheever
