Smart Women: A Novel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"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.

Review:

"Real people experiencing real crises....Ms. Blume has an emollient style which, while realistic on detail, also exudes good feeling..." John Barkham Reviews

Review:

"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
