Daum’s enormous comic gift—and her ability to use it in the service of fundamentally serious issues—is an unexpected delight.
~New York Times Book Review
A crisp, wisecracking voice . . . an admirably nuanced view of the American heartland.
Funny, literate . . . this is a surprising, entertaining, and often touching story of a single woman lurching into her thirties looking for love and fulfillment, but mostly just finding herself. Top quality.
Daum has a charming, breezy style and a pretty wicked sense of humor. . . . The Quality of Life Report is great fun.
The simple life never looked so complicated.
