Editorial Reviews

Review

"Rare and compelling in its compassion and its unassuming eloquence...her examples are so vivid and so ordinary they touch the hurt child in us all"
The New York Magazine

"An unpretentious little book with an amazing impact...Many readers find themselves portrayed with an accuracy and empathy that seem uncanny, as if the author had been a silent, unseen witness to their childhood [and] their innermost and secret selves."
Vogue

"Narcissism has rarely been written about with the clarity and quiet insights of this modest, thought-provoking work."
WashingtonPost Book World

"Full of wisdom and perception."
The New Republic
