Haven Kimmel author of "A Girl Named Zippy" and "Something Rising (Light and Swift)" Tender, sad, and without a trace of self-pity, "Name All the Animals" is a beautiful memoir. I'll never forget it.
Laura Shaine Cunningham author of "Sleeping Arrangements" and "A Place in the Country" In refusing to lose her brother, Roy, Smith gives us a memoir devoted to what truly matters. It has been a long time since I have read an account of a daughter, son, mother, and father who love one another, free of resentments and pettiness. "Name All the Animals" is a memoir that celebrates a lost life and escorts us past sorrow into the drama of a love story.
Laura Moriarty author of "The Center of Everything" To read "Name All the Animals" is to witness a fierce battle between a teenager's despair and her almost subconscious will to survive and find joy. In poetic but understated prose, Smith carries the reader through her grief without ever resorting to fairy tales or half-truths; her refusal of easy comforts is what gives this memoir so much weight and beauty. I will recommend it to everyone I know.
Judy Blunt author of "Breaking Clean" I am speechless with admiration. "Name All the Animals" demands a "must-read" list of its own. I find it hard to imagine the reader who would end Smith's book and not have tucked away a deeper, more profound understanding of how we survive this human condition of faith and grief, of love and life.
David Schickler author of "Kissing in Manhattan" The grief in this memoir is the size of Goliath....Ms. Smith, with scrappy, unsentimental grace, battles her giant and wins our spectator hearts. Her brother, her schooldays, her prose, her candor -- all are lean and vital. Alison Smith is a cool warrior of a writer, but she makes us want to hug her and her story with every possible human warmth.
"Alison Smith has written a beautiful, completely unsentimental memoir so full of love and sorrow and the stuff of everyday that you live in it as much as read it."
-- Anna Quindlen
"Stunning...[a] story of survival and sexual awakening."
-- O, The Oprah Magazine
"Smith writes with such assured distance that this quiet examination of grief reads more like biography than autobiography, and displays a novelist's gift for revealing character."
"Makes time stand still and your coffee go cold beside you."
-- Elissa Schappell, The New York Times Book Review
"Sometimes a friend will ask you about a book you've read and everything you say winds up sounding inadequate. Name All the Animals is that kind of book....This is the story of my life, too, told so I finally understand it. Which, in the memoir department, means that it is pretty perfect."
-- Anna Quindlen, Book-of-the-Month Club judge, writing in BOMC News
Recounts the author's teenage experience of losing her beloved older brother in a car accident, a loss after which she managed her grief by engaging in self-destructive behaviors until her forbidden love for another girl helped her define herself beyond her brother's death. Reprint. 50,000 first printing.
