'I adored this wise, funny, sad, quirky story...It's brilliant on the stories we tell ourselves and others in order to resist change, while beating ourselves up about not taking steps towards a happier future. Heartbreaking and life-affirming.' * DAILY MAIL *
Written with such humour and heart that'll make you laugh out loud and have a little sob simultaneously. * STYLIST *
Incisive, acerbic, but also a book that's kind to its characters... a must-read. * RED magazine *
'So sweetly funny, so very touching.' * SAINSBURYS magazine *
'Both poignant and giggle-inducing, this is a wry look at what happens when life doesn't quite pan out as you'd hoped' * FABULOUS magazine *
What a gem of a novel. Separation Anxiety is wickedly funny, heartrending, poignantly wise, and hopeful. he main character, Judy, is hilariously offbeat, yet very easy to identify with, honest and thoughtful, and I loved spending time with her. * Diane Ackerman, author of The Zookeeper's Wife *
I enjoyed Separation Anxiety very much... It has a real freshness of voice and though it is very poignant, several parts also made me laugh out loud * Laura Barmett, author of The Versions of Us *
Sometimes a book finds its way to you and you just know instantly that this is the book you need now. That's how I feel about Separation Anxiety. I think it's the book everyone needs right now. It is compassionate and funny, articulating with gentle humor the terrible things that we're all grappling with. To steal a phrase from my daughter, it made me happy-cry. * Laura Lippman *
Separation Anxiety is as hilarious and painful as life itself...a joy to read * Claire Messud, bestselling author of The Burning Girl and The Emperor's Children *
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 * Washington Post *
'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 *
There are some very funny moments, but it's also insightful about midlife disappointment and starting over. * GOOD HOUSEKEEPING *
