You Think It, I’ll Say It

Praise & Reviews

“Masterfully plotted and often further gilded with mirthful twists, Sittenfeld’s short-form works (half of which are published here for the first time) are every bit as smart, sensitive, funny, and genuine as her phenomenally popular novels.”

“Curtis Sittenfeld proves once again why she’s one of the finest observers of human nature writing today with a collection of potent pieces as funny as they are literary.”

“Curtis Sittenfeld has wowed readers with her spectacular novels and now she’s back with some excellent short fiction….Each one of these pieces has Sittenfeld’s characteristic spark.”

Sittenfeld “brings her unflinching eye, piercing wit, and storytelling gifts to everything she does, making this collection a series of perfect gems, each one worth going over again and again.”

“Wise and warm. Exploring what it means to be human, these characters spring off the page.”
—Red Magazine (UK)

“A collection of sharply observed and unforgettably crafted stories about relationships, grudges, and gender roles in the lives of lawyers, couples, and mothers—the sheer power of Sittenfeld’s storytelling talents will leave you breathless.”
Southern Living

“Chronicling a rich array of life, love, and loneliness over the past two-and-a-half decades, Sittenfeld’s first story collection takes no prisoners, showing us human relationships in all their messy permutations….In crisp, surprising language, these ten stories…put couples’ foibles under the spotlight.”
