Editorial Reviews


"When you read Laura Kalpakian, you are in the capable and tender hands of a master, and The Memoir Club is proof of her well-honed craft. It is a feat of brilliant execution, with multilayered plots like those of our real lives, and with characters who captivated me with their pasts and presents, as if we were all spellbound in my own living room. The truth-- it is a remarkable novel".
- Susan Straight, author of Highwire Moon

From the Back Cover

Praise for Laura Kalpakian:

"Whatever happened to old-fashioned stories, with fleshed-out characters, well-crafted plots, strong themes and palpable atmosphere? Laura Kalpakian, for one, still is writing them."
- Wall Street Journal

"Kalpakian creates inspiring, thought-provoking, even bewitching characters."
- Baltimore Sun

[Kalpakian] is so entertaining a writer that it takes a while to realize how smart she is. . . . Generous, gritty, sexy, full of lyrical musings, and funny as all get-out."
- The New Yorker

". . . . Kalpakian writes with a verve that leaves you laughing and contemplating your own ideas of family."
- Chicago Tribune

"Kalpakian [is] at her best-earthy, magical, compassionate, and inventive to the last detail."
- Washington Post

"Kalpakian's observations are sharp, her humor is sweet."
- London Observer

"Kalpakian is an extraordinarily talented writer with an almost intimidating understanding."
- James DeRossitt, Memphis Commercial Appeal
