A Life in Men is a terrific book, a tender story of friendship, and a frank story of a young woman's adventures with an assortment of oddly funny, violent, and quirky men. It's intense and beautifully written.”Audrey Niffenegger, author of The Time Traveler's Wife

“Ambitious in breadth and scope, this work will appeal to fans of Barbara Kingsolver and those who like being immersed in foreign settings.”Library Journal

“Mary’s . . . storyline masterfully plays out to its conclusion . . . [The] novel packs an emotional punch throughout, particularly in its final third.”Publishers Weekly

“A joyful, ambitious novel that is also an adventure traversing three continents, a meditation on love, sex, and, most important, friendship, which can overcome time, distance, and even death.”Bonnie Jo Campbell, author of Once Upon a River
