"Dunn's clear prose and lively recall of her calamities make for an effortless read." -People "Witty, smart, droll, moving, and always entertaining, Dunn's book is nothing short of a thoroughly enjoyable triumph . . ." -The Oregonian "I loved this book." -Rosie O'Donnell "Samantha Dunn pulls no punches in this tough, witty, and deeply personal memoir of a brave woman's moment of crisis as she examines the parts played by the elements or risk, identity, and the unexamined life in her own catastrophe, and the unexpected requirements of healing. A beautiful, necessary book." -Janet Fitch "The book you hold in your hands is more than a moving example of art as healing; it's a perfect triumph." -Darin Strauss "Ms. Dunn is the storyteller we all one day want to be: a writer unafraid of the less flattering truths, a writer keen to know why the up is at times down, a writer undaunted by the mysteries peculiar to this planet, a writer for whom the easy answers are no answers at all." -Lee K. Abbott
