Meg Wolitzer is the author of eight previous novels, including The Ten-Year Nap, The Position, and The Wife. Her short fiction has appeared in The Best American Short Stories and The Pushcart Prize. She lives in New York City.From Publishers Weekly:
"With this bittersweet, engaging novel, Wolitzer again demonstrates her skill at portraying the inevitable love-hate of human relationships. Her prose is seductive, with an elegiac strain, yet there is wry humor in this tale of an obese TV comedienne and her two daughters," wrote PW .
