Review:

Extraordinary. . . . Everything about this book seems perfect. San Francisco Chronicle
Fresh, galvanizing and articulate . . . a narrative that asks as many questions as it answers. Cogent, thoughtful and honest. The New York Times
One cannot read. . . and not be stirred . . . As moving as it is sparse, as revealing as it is concealing, as straightforward as it is complex. Los Angeles Times Book Review
Engaging. . . . Salzman creates a cast of lively, convincing, and hugely sympathetic characters and True Notebooks is filled with powerfully moving scenes. O, The Oprah Magazine
