Reviews

"A delicious binge of a book. I had a wonderful time reading Braided Lives, crying real tears at the sad parts and feeling real elation at the happy ones." --San Francisco Chronicle
"Honest and impressive power. No writer I know of has so thoroughly explored the changing, despairing, frightening, and complicated world of a young college girl becoming a woman." --Washington Post Book World
"This book demonstrates the maturation of Piercy's native talent for story-telling . . . we would have to look to a French writer like Colette or to American writers of another generation, like May Sarton, to find anyone who writes as tenderly as Piercy about life's redeeming pleasures - sex, of course, but also the joys of good food, good conversation, and the reassuring little rituals like feeding the cats, watering the plant, weeding the garden." --Judith Paterson, Washington Post Book World
"Braided Lives is a big, rich book. This writer just gets better and better. She is allowing more flashes of humor and more generosity . . . her sure novelist's hold on making a good story, her poet's eye for careful detail . . . Braided Lives is a novel that tries not to simplify but to clarify . . . and by so doing, it adds a great deal to our understanding of how things came to be as they are, and what some of yesterday might have meant." --Marcie Hershman, Boston Globe
"A magnificent achievement. With beauty and mastery, [Piercy] palpably creates, recreates a decade. Braided Lives is one of those rare, rich, valuable books that reveal how realities, class, sex, one's times--shape generations." --Tillie Olsen
