"Kari Lizer's essays are SUBLIME . . . Moving and laugh out loud funny, and not in a 'someone told me that's a quippy thing to say about someone's writing', but because it's actually TRUE. No one is a more keen observer of human behavior, of the kind we all try to hide from one another, her writing makes me feel seen, as if I belong somewhere, and that somewhere is that magical place where Kari's pen touches paper . . . Her writing makes me feel as though I am home."
"Kari Lizer writes about being the child of parents, being the parent of children and being a middle aged adult with brutal honesty, a tender heart and a wicked sense of humor. Also, it's possible that she's insane."—Julia Louis-Dreyfus
