“Gilman offers a narrator who is by turns heartbreakingly sympathetic, stubborn, passionate, ruthless, ingratiating, exasperating, clever, and insufferable. Readers follow Lillian through her joining and losing a family, marriage to an Errol Flynn look-alike, the creation of a wildly successful business, some highly questionable decisions, a visit to the White House, and an assault charge -- at age 74! What a character! What a book!” Banna Rubinow, The River's End Bookstore, Oswego, NY
