Editorial Reviews

Review

"The light from Laura Zigman’s new novel, “Separation Anxiety,” is generated by a kind of literary nuclear fusion: an intense compression of grief and humor.... [Zigman] has a great humorist’s eye for the comedy we’ve seen but overlooked.... Stalked by the loneliness of middle age, you may think the last thing you need is a novel about a woman driven to wearing her dog. You’d be wrong." (Washington Post)

“A quirky novel that’s as hilarious as it is touching and wise.” (People)

"[Separation Anxiety] imparts a life-affirming vigor... Judy is a natural comedian and Zigman has gifted her with a fiercely singular voice.... If the book nails life’s more challenging moments, it also captures an astonishing level of empathy." (Boston Globe)

“You root for Zigman’s decent and vulnerable characters even while wanting to give them a good shake…. [Judy] is a familiar, self-deprecating, likable protagonist.” (New York Times Book Review )

"[A] novel about stress, release, and the unlikely places we turn to for comfort in uncertain times." (Vogue)

“A triumph of friendship and storytelling . . . Separation Anxiety confronts the stark plateau of middle age with humor and grace. It’s a book that transforms fractured domesticity into a more honest sense of community and selfhood with great wit and enormous heart. The catharsis it offers is both real and satisfying.” (New York Observer)

"A world where motherhood, wifely duties, and career aspirations take hard twists and turns. With plenty of snark and a dash of humor, [Zigman] shows just how real the struggle bus is, perfect for readers who like a heroine with a messy life.  (Booklist)

"Deeply affecting." (Real Simple)

"A hilarious yet thought-provoking exploration of the middle-aged limbo.... With wit and tenderness, Zigman explores life's most important relationships as they develop and change over time."
(Emma Straub on TODAY)

"That’s Laura Zigman’s comic genius, that she can take the stuff of mid-life misery and make it not just relatable but downright funny." (Christian Science Monitor)
