Product description

Review

Frankel's debut is a wonderful literary treat that offers a fresh twist on the modern family, one that relies on the bonds of women. "Library Journal (starred)"

This beautifully written debut novel offers something for everyone--humor, richly drawn characters and a tender exploration of love, friendship and food. "LA Times Magazine"

Strikingly pure of heart, voice and message, The Atlas of Love tells the story of a life lived on the treadmill of academia. It is likely to be a favorite of your bookseller, because it's a life that will resonate a lot of hard work, little traditional payoff, yet, somehow, all worthwhile. Therein lies the brilliance of this book. Frankel puts the reader into that frame of being, where it becomes easy to understand how a friend would be willing to give so much to help sustain another. Though the payoff is hard-earned and unusual, it's also extraordinary. Frankel s prose flows easily, heavily laced with candor, wit, and emotion, in a way that brings to mind a modern Jane Austen of the Pacific Northwest. "Pacific Northwest Booksellers Association Awards Committee"

Laurie Frankel displays a great ear for dialogue and a witty turn of phrase in quick characterizations. "The Seattle Times "

...a feel-good novel..and a celebration of modern family life in the myriad forms it can take. "Booklist"

Don't miss Laurie Frankel's "The" "Atlas of Love"; this story of women's friendships and redefining "family" flows with lovely writing. "Nancy Pearl, author of Book Lust: Recommended Reading for Every Mood, Moment, and Reason"

It's been a long time since I've been as charmed by a book as I was by this beautifully written, highly literate story of friendship, parenthood, and every other kind of love you can imagine. I was captivated by Janey, a narrator whose wit and generous spirit caused me to forget that she wasn't a flesh and blood person--and to wish that she were. "Marisa de los Santos, author of Love Walked In and Belong to Me"

Packed full of hilarious and insightful observations on life, love, and literature, "The" "Atlas of Love" deftly explores the boundaries of friendship and family, and the true meaning of motherhood. "J. Courtney Sullivan, author of Commencement"

Immensely likable, playful and literary, this is a novel full of love. "Cathleen Schine, author of The Three Weissmanns of Westport"

The Atlas of Love is an engagingly funny novel with a memorable premise three women graduate students from very different backgrounds team up to raise a child that deepens into a moving and challenging meditation on the power and the limits of female friendship. Laurie Frankel writes with a light touch and a keen eye for detail, blending academic comedy and domestic drama with unusual skill. Tom Perrotta, author of Little Children and The Abstinence Teacher

Once in a great while, a book is so beautifully written that when you close it, all you can do is sit quietly and hold it to your chest. Laurie Frankel's "The Atlas of Love" is that book. "Sandra Kring, author of The Book of Bright Ideas and Thank You For All Things""
