Synopsis/Praise

“Hilarious, addictive…a brilliant, exquisitely modern exposé of just how far from perfect the lives of the elite can be…Kogan’s characters are so fully realized, their dilemmas so profoundly human, that we come to see them not as members of the vaunted ruling class but as flawed, farcical versions of our own imperfect selves.” —People, a “People Pick” 4 out of 4 stars for THE RED BOOK “Appealingly wry, copiously descriptive and often witty…[Copaken] brings her photographic gift—an eye for the well-chosen image—to her writing , and the effect can be unforgettable….Unlike so many memoirs, it is eloquent and well-observed, not only about the world: war, death, photojournalism and, of course, the worldwide battle between the sexes.” —The Washington Post Book World, re SHUTTERBABE “The author is masterful at showing the fluid state of mothering in all its kaleidoscopic dimensions – the highs and lows, the angry moments counterbalancing affection, and the depths to which some will go to ‘protect’ loved ones. This exceptional, riveting novel will haunt you long after you’ve reached the end.” —Rocky Mountain News re BETWEEN HERE AND APRIL
