"An eloquent collection of essays...it means to be an outsider, forever trying to apprehend the mysterious order of things." -- Boston Globe
"Barbara Ascher has a serious mind and the gift of a light touch." -- -- Eudora Welty
"Barbara Ascher has a serious mind and the gift of a light touch." -- Eudora Welty
"This is one of those books that wakes you up to the life you have failed to live. It declares war on the part of you that settles for too little and dares or ask for enough. Barbara Ascher's book is part philosophy, part glove flung to the ground, and part cry of the heart. You read it and wonder aloud why you have not asked more for yourself. You want to tear If a from your own sleeping life and shout, 'Now!' What a wonderful book! This is one of the books I love." -- Pat Conroy, author of The Prince of Tides and Beach Music
"Isn't It Romantic? deals with a journey out of the self. Ascher, author of Landscape Without Gravity, Playing After Dark and The Habit of Loving, sets out to track our human instinct for romance in the most surprising of places"
