Author Info
Anna Quindlen
The oldest of five children, Anna Quindlen grew up in an Irish-Italian family outside Philadelphia. She attended Barnard College, and in 1974 began her career as a reporter. Her column in the New York Times was enormously successful, and in 1992 she won a Pulitzer Prize for her newspaper work. In 1995, she quit her job at the Times to write fiction full time.
Praise
"One thing is true: This is a remarkable book. Anna Quindlen writes about family with all the humanity, wit and pain of going home. This is a strikingly honest and transforming book."
"There is not a single false word in 'One True Thing'. Readers of her columns in the Times are aware that Anna Quindlen has a first-class mind; now they will know she has a great heart as well."
"Will move you to reexamine your own intimate relations in search of the One True Thing."
"Like a brush with mortality, 'One True Thing' leaves the reader feeling grateful, wide-awake, lucky to be alive."
"It is simply impossible to forget."
