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

"Dickinson makes you believe in the ageless gift of love....In Strangers Tend to Tell Me Things, she is...making room for us to make our own mistakes, to leave the house with our hair unbrushed, to fall in love in a rush, to fall off the tightrope during that awkward blending family stage, and then to climb back on, quietly triumphant."―Beth Kephart, The Chicago Tribune

"'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

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 Heart Warming 19 marzo 2017
Di Stepehn R. Mccombs - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This a heart warming set of memories that celebrate the best of what life can be: finding love, surviving loss, being successful, and building family. It is the good life. It is not a map for all to follow. It is a touching sampling of finding happiness in everyday living.

4.0 su 5 stelle Life Re-Boots at 50 3 maggio 2017
Di K. Alexandrakis - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina rigida Acquisto verificato
Interesting biography of Ms. Dickinson, an advice columnist, who returns to her rural hometown in middle age, and reconnects with family and friends. I enjoyed most the parts in which she cares for her aging and ill mother, who was rather a feisty character. Spoiler alert: The one part I found difficult to comprehend was the voluntary celibacy she shared with her fiancé. I do not think many mature women would do this, even to please a partner. Luckily, the couple proved to be compatible, and gradually blended their disparate lives, with Ms. Dickinson developing strong relationships with her step-daughters.

4.0 su 5 stelle A good book about life and dealing with people 21 aprile 2017
Di Bernice Osborne - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
This book held my interest throughout. The author was down to earth and willing to share so many aspects of her life. She never flaunted her achievements and seemed very respectful of others, whether or not she agreed with them. I thought portions about grieving her mother's death were too long, but I am not someone to judge how or how long one grieves. She also tastefully shared how she dealt with many conflicts in her life and always was considerate of the feelings of everyone involved.
