LoveReading Says

A wryly amusing, observational story, brushing compassionately against the pitfalls of modern life. Jen is in her early 30’s, she lives with her husband in New York, she dreams of painting, of having a baby, yet finds herself trapped in a ghastly job, confined by the barriers in her own mind. I initially felt a little thrown, a little uncertain, yet as I gradually became a part of Jen’s life, I became completely absorbed by her story. Jessica Winter has the ability to point out the obvious in an originally witty style, she made me look in new directions, focus on new thoughts. I raised an eyebrow or two at Jen’s choices, yet as she floundered, I wanted to hug, to help, and I cheered her on. I recommend taking your time as you explore ‘Break in Case of Emergency’, it’s shrewdly clever, and pierces illusions with beautiful barbed intensity. ~ Liz Robinson
