Review:

"I was on the verge of tears more than once in the course of Dani Shapiro's impeccably structured spiritual odyssey. But Devotion's biggest triumph is its voice: funny and unpretentious, concrete and earthy-appealing to skeptics and believers alike. This is a gripping, beautiful story."--Jennifer Egan, author of The Keep

"This is a beautiful, wry and moving story about one intelligent woman's journey into her own life, to the corners where intelligence doesn't always help."--Amy Bloom, author of Away

"Dani Shapiro takes readers on an intense journey in search of meaning and peace. Her story of hope is eloquently told and unflinchingly honest."--Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle Jeannette Walls, author of The Glass CastleJeannette Walls, author of The Glass Castle

"I was immensely moved by this elegant book, which reminded me all over again that all of us-at some point or another-must buck up our courage and face down the big spiritual questions of life, death, love, loss and surrender."--Elizabeth Gilbert, author of Eat, Pray, Love

"Brave, compelling, unexpectedly witty. . . . Stunningly intimate journey. . . . Thanks to Shapiro's excruciatingly honest self-examination and crystal clear, lyrical writing, the journey--as secular swami Steve Jobs once famously said--is indeed the reward."--People (4 out of 4 stars)

"Dani Shapiro's novels and nonfiction are always rich in honesty and intelligence, about the psyche and lost hearts and families, about messes and shame and what calls us to transcend."--Anne Lamott, author of Grace (Eventually)

"The one book that anyone over, say, 35 needs to read right now."--Jesse Kornbluth, Huffington Post
