"The protagonist of HENNY ON THE COUCH is a New York mother we can all identify with-bright, harried, striving, and hopeful. You want her to be your best friend. This is a book for any woman who's ever had dreams for herself or wondered what became of them."—Amy Sohn, author of Prospect Park West"
Rarely has there been a novel that has dealt quite so honestly with the issues that assail urban women today. Unflinchingly honest and devoid of self-indulgence, Henny on the Couch
is a compelling, brave, and beautiful novel."—Kaylie Jones, author of Lies My Mother Never Told Me
"Soodak's first novel, about an affluent New York mom and her rocky relationship with her own mother, considers several mother-daughter parallels . . . Set against the backdrop of the Big Apple, which Kara clearly loves, the book examines Kara's life ... in writing that flows. . . [this] portrait of a privileged upper-class New York mom rings true."—Kirkus Reviews
