"HILARIOUS. . . A CHARMING, ENTERTAINING READ."
--Los Angeles Times
"WONDERFUL. . . Eve Mozell is having a lousy day, and she hasn't even gotten past breakfast yet. Her father, a senile ex-alcoholic whose idea of a good joke is goosing his woman doctor, started phoning Eve at 6 a.m. Her teenage son, who alternately ignores and lectures her, is off to a séance. ('You know, Mom, all doors are entrances. Think about it.') And a quick glance in the mirror turns out to be a big mistake. Oh, God, is that my face? . . . I need a vacation. No. This is just me. Me at forty-four. . . . What a terrific debut."
"TRUE AND TOUCHING."
"Delia Ephron is blessed with the driest of wits, the tenderest of hearts, and an uncanny ear for the way people really talk. Do yourself a favor and curl up with Hanging Up--but unplug the phone first."
"MOVING AND FUNNY. . . In some ways, Hanging Up is a funhouse version of King Lear."

From the Paperback edition.
In this witty and heartfelt story of modern love (also recently made into a movie), Eve Mozell confronts her bittersweet bond between love of family and love of self. C.J. Critt is a superbly appropriate narrator. Her extensive theatrical background lends polish and clarity to her performance. Even the narrative passages become an exciting part of the storytelling. Of course, this grand storytelling is in no small part due to Delia Ephron's humorously spot-on portrayal of contemporary life as seen through rose-colored Groucho glasses. This audiobook is comedic writing--and performance--at its best. R.A.P. Winner of AUDIOFILE Earphones Award. © AudioFile 2000, Portland, Maine-- Copyright © AudioFile, Portland, Maine
