Review

Praise for Joy for Beginners

“A joy to read. Bauermeister gives us characters who revel in the best of what life has to offer—loving relationships, fine food, good books, and travel—and she writes with keen observance and wry wit...Readers will be inspired to leap into their own lives with renewed gusto.”—Stephanie Kallos, author of Sing Them Home

“Erica Bauermeister’s prose is evocative and compelling.”—Garth Stein, author of The Art of Racing in the Rain

Bauermeister has created a cast of textured and nuanced characters who individually and as a group speak to what makes women interesting and enigmatic. Her prose is velvety smooth, revealing life at once mournful and auspicious. Joyful, indeed.”—Library Journal (starred review)

“How transporting to live, even briefly, inside these women’s lives.”—Laura Hansen, Bookin’ it

“Sensual...evocative...A book designed to fill you up and make you hungry for life.”—Publishers Weekly

Joy for Beginners is ultimately a celebration of life; a literary confirmation of the power of friendship.”—Carol Cassella, author of Oxygen

About the Author
