“Susan Buttenwieser is wise, out-loud funny, awe-inspiringly empathic, and the wielder of a marvelously dangerous and whetted wit. Buy, read, and revel; Buttenwieser is the best there is.” —John Reed
"...Buttenwieser’s sketches are more like pathology slides of the human condition than snapshots of happy family picnics." --Kirkus Reviews — Kirkus Reviews
