Recensione

"Funny, generous, thoughtful, and wonderfully crisp, Dickinson's memoir is one of those tales that make you proud to be a human--with all of our hopes, failures, and graces intact."―Gillian Flynn, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Gone Girl


"Dickinson deftly recounts [her story] truthfully but without trespassing on family members' privacy...Her warm and generous spirit makes a reader feel as though they've been invited in for hot cocoa on a cold day."―Booklist (starred review)


"Amy Dickinson has written a simply wonderful memoir. It is courageously honest and touching, but most of all, hilarious and laugh-out-loud funny. She tells us what it is like to be human, to love and to lose and keep going, no matter what. This book is a life-affirming love letter to small town America and the true meaning of family and community. I couldn't have loved it more!"―Fannie Flagg, New York Times bestselling author of Can't Wait to Get to Heaven

"[An] honest, funny memoir...especially potent when it comes to the blending of families...[a book] that won't disappoint."
Real Simple


"A wonderful memoir of what family and home mean in these complicated times. Amy Dickinson will captivate you with her wit, wisdom, and honesty."―Delia Ephron, author of Siracusa

"Wryly sincere and poignant...Dickinson remains an engagingly chatty, witty, and relatable writer with sage insights."―Kirkus Reviews


"Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things is a very funny, whip-smart, charming and addictively engaging memoir. I felt myself wanting to jump in to the pages and be with all of Amy's people, and of course Amy. The wisdom she is well known for is present on every page. This is a book you will want to read and give to the people you love (and maybe the people you aren't so crazy about)."―Brad Meltzer, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Heroes for My Daughter

"This is awkward, because the characters in this book are real people, but I'm going to say it anyway: I love the people in this book. Jane! Bruno and the daughters! And Amy, who is very tough on herself, and funny and wise; I especially love her because she is a wonderful writer. Plus, she sings in the church choir. Plus, there is a line on p. 169 that makes me laugh every time I think of it. Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things is a terrific memoir."―Jane Hamilton, bestselling author of A Map of The World


"Poignant and revealing."―Bustle, Best Nonfiction Books of the Month


"'Real life doesn't always reveal itself as neatly as a question sent in to an advice columnist,' Dickinson admits. But the heartfelt honesty of her entertaining narrative--rife with contemporary dramas to which many readers will relate--makes for a compelling, hopeful portrait of a woman coming-of-middle-age with wit, aplomb and authenticity."―Shelf Awareness


"You can't go home again. But you should consider moving to Amy Dickinson's hometown. The Village of Freeville may not have a Starbucks but it's got Venti grace, kindness, and wisdom."―Mo Rocca, CBS Sunday Morning

"Amy Dickinson's Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things is a very funny, whip-smart, charming, and addictively engaging memoir. I felt myself wanting to jump into the pages and be with all of Amy's people, and of course Amy. The wisdom she is well known for is present on every page without knocking you over the head. This is a book you will want to read and give to the people you love (and maybe the people you aren't so crazy about)."
Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author of You Had Me at Woof


"Dickinson's irresistible memoir reads like a letter from an upbeat best friend."―Publishers Weekly on THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE

"Buoyant and bright, Dickinson offers a refreshingly open and sincere tribute to life's most important relationships."―Booklist on THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE

"That's a woman who understands the power of defusing pain with humor. Which just might be the best advice there is."―People Magazine on THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE

"An unabashed, self-pity-free, landmine-filled love letter to a rocky past, credited for the author's current success and happiness."―Kirkus Reviews on THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE

"The book hits all the right contemporary women's-lit buttons, from the title, which immediately tells you you're in Sisters of the Traveling Pants territory, to the wry, bright writing style, to the cast of characters in Dickinson's family. They may suffer from an unusually high divorce rate, but they're terrific at sharing communal pancake breakfasts and being there for each other."―The Washington Post on THE MIGHTY QUEENS OF FREEVILLE

5.0 su 5 stelle A Wonderful Read - for a Snow Day or Any Day! 14 marzo 2017
Di mandosally - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
At first thought, one might wonder why I'd ever read Amy's latest memoir. I have little of nothing in common with the basic themes of the book. I have no sisters, no daughter, and for more of my life than not, no mother. I don't have a close-knit family, nor any sort of blended family. I didn't grow up on a farm, raised primarily by a single parent. I was never a single parent, myself. I didn't find middle-aged love with a man I knew from high school. What could I possibly relate to in a story all about these things?

But that is the wonderful gift that Amy possesses, be it as an author or an advice columnist, i.e. she is relatable. She can tell the story of her life, so very different from mine, or offer advice on subjects that I could care less about, and I always end up thinking to myself, "I know exactly what you mean, Amy." I loved "The Mighty Queens of Freeville" and now love "Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things" just as much - if not more. As she does when she's on the panel of "Wait Wait!," Amy can make you laugh out loud with her quirky thoughts and descriptions and self-deprecating humor. She can also make you cry at the touching tenderness in which she tells the stories of being human.

This book arrived this morning, just as a wild blizzard was settling in on New England. I sat on the couch all day and read it, cover to cover. I can't think of a better way to have spent this snow day. My advice to anyone looking for their next good book to read, pick up this one.

5.0 su 5 stelle Dickinson does it again. 14 marzo 2017
Di Amazon Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The memoir—with its witty and honest storytelling—surpassed all my expectations. Now the author of two memoirs, Dickinson clearly knows how to bring readers into her life. I laughed-out-loud over Dickinson's account of her whirlwind courtship. I shed tears throughout the chapter on her mother's last year. And, when I finished the memoir, I turned to page one to read her story all over again.

5.0 su 5 stelle Thank you! 19 marzo 2017
Di Runoways - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
How great to be camping over Spring Break with my kids and bonus kids and their friends and my "Bruno" feeling the NEED to read and discovering this jewel. It is so validating to know there are other crazies navigating second marriages and their children blending with your own, all the while overcoming the dastardly deeds of your own parents. It is both mystery and also so very cleansing. Amy writes humorously and honestly about her shortcomings and those of others that little life lessons are learned here page after page. Thank you Amy for taking time to write this book while juggling all of the other responsibilities in life, I look forward to visiting for Dairy Day (I moo at cows on the roadside) and I look forward to seeing the town as you have described it - just not in winter.
5.0 su 5 stelle Great read. Great listen. Great gift. 27 marzo 2017

Do you know that feeling when you're reading a good book and you start to slow yourself down because you simply don't want it to end? You're torn because you're loving the writing, the humor, the story, the characters, and the whole feeling you get while you're devouring it, but there's that point in the book where you start to slow yourself down because you don't want the inevitable to happen in the story or the book to wind down to a close? That's how it was with Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things. If I wasn't laughing or nodding in complicity with the thoughts and feelings being expressed on the pages, I was making myself slow down because I didn't want to get to the sad parts that are, as in life itself, inevitable.

The book was real and honest and genuine - and it made me feel more real. After all, Amercia's advice columnist can admit to not sharing well all the time and having chin hairs, too, then I feel grateful taking comfort in the shared experience. Not only did I read this book and enjoy it thoroughly, I also bought the audio version, read by the author, and enjoyed that just as much. I've bought a few extra copies to share with friends because we are all children who find ourselves taking care of aging parents, involved in step-parenting and second family dynamics, and human beings who question and second-guess ourselves and our decisions in life. How refreshing to learn that the person we all count on and trust for advice is also unafraid to admit and embrace her own humanity and fallibility.

Now, if the rest of us could just find a way to ship some of Kim and Karin Lamott's farm-fresh Freeville Sweet Corn, we might find the secret to creating peace on Earth. :)

5.0 su 5 stelle I totally enjoyed reading about the zigs and zags 27 marzo 2017
Di Shelley - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Amy takes us on a journey through her life that is just delightful. I totally enjoyed reading about the zigs and zags, but more importantly her pragmatic and whimsical approach to the various chapters that unfolded for her. The depth of Amy's character itself shouts out of the page as she cares for her mother, raises her daughter and melds into Bruno's life and daughters. I cherished the ending and it brought tears of joy to my eyes. Thank you Amy, for not only letting us into your life, but sharing the wisdom of your experience.
