Review:

"In this lovely funny-sad-profound collection of essays, Moskowitz looks at life with brutal honesty, a poet's ear for language and a whole lot of humor. You don't have to be a Jewish feminist mama to love this book . . . but it wouldn't hurt." Tablet Magazine

"What a feast of a book! With compassion and wit, and language honed to utter frankness, Moskowitz gives us her piercingly tender observations about unlikely friendships, transgressive love, disappointing plants, and sacred Jewish rituals of the kitchen." Lilith Magazine

"...bridges the gap between humor and despair, past and present, Jew and gentile, to reveal its author's simple humanity, deeply rooted in her unwavering love of family.... Touching and compelling." The Washington Post

"A modern woman's ancient voice, full of juicy taste of life knowing, loving, feeling, and clever."
Lore Segal, author of Shakespeare's Kitchen
