"Redaing Isaacs is like taking a good friend to lunch. You get funny observations on contemporary life with great gossip and a great time."
A compelling, witty read. The Washington Post Book World & the Seattle Times call it a "Best Book of the Year."
I loved this book. Although I usually don't like books set in cities,I liked the Manhatten setting. The character had a great view of life. Although she was comfortable with both the upper class and the lower class, she was constantly making sharp observations about both. Great dialogue, great characters and great ending.
Abandoned by ther mother before her first birthday, occasionally "parented" by her father (when he wasn't in prison!) Amy Lincoln basically raises herself, gains a scholarship to a New England boarding school, then goes to Harvard, then to Columbia School of Journalism. Now a reporter for a prestigious magazine, she doesn't know who she is or how to connect.
Amy's search for her mom becomes a search for a place to belong.
Funny observations on contemporary life and a great read.
This is a great rainy day read.
