Smart Women: A Novelby Judy Blume
Synopses & Reviews
"Emotionally satisfying, compulsively readable...triggers both laughter and tears....You'll be utterly captivated," is how Working Woman described Judy Blume's Smart Women.
This tender and hilarious story of a divorced woman, who falls in love with her best friend's ex-husband, is told from the point of view of both the adults and the adolescents, making for a deeply engaging read that crosses generations.
Readers have continued to discover this novel over the two decades since its original publication, to the tune of 2 million copies, and it sold more than 100,000 copies in the last year. Judy Blume holds a completely unique position in the hearts of readers, and these new editions will have them falling in love all over again.
"Real people experiencing real crises....Ms. Blume has an emollient style which, while realistic on detail, also exudes good feeling..." John Barkham Reviews
"Mrs. Blume's women come across as narcissists — virtually incapable of talking about anything except their emotional needs and desires. As far as this reader is concerned, they're not smart women, but self-absorbed ones — and highly unpleasant, at that." Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
