Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Me Times Three is witty and wise, an irresistible dissection of love in the city”. Joan Didion
“A funny and moving coming of age story that is an important recollection of a specific time in this city. It’s a very real tale about trying to be somebody—about who you are, who you pretend to be and who you really want to be. It doesn’t matter how old you are; if you’re single, it’s the truth. I loved it.” Sarah Jessica Parker
“A fresh and insightful romantic novel with a great heart. Ms. Witchel, with her keen observation and irony, redefines the world of single career women in Manhattan and finds compassion, dignity, and great humor. This is a novel of elegant skill and comic depth.” Wendy Wasserstein, author of Shiksa Goddess
“Deliciously wrought, with a fun twist and some lovely revenge along the way.” New York Times
“A story that’s as affecting as it is just plain fun…With its razor-sharp dissections of love and aspiration, Me Times Three instructs as deftly as it entertains.” Los Angeles Times
“A sardonic, romantic comedy…entertaining [and] delectable.” USA Today
“A hilarious debut novel…It’s a smarter, meatier Bridget Jones’s Diary that you’ll read in one sitting.” Glamour
“It boasts an intelligent, snappy heroine, goofy supporting characters, sharp dialogue, and some genuinely touching moments.” Entertainment Weekly
“Smart, witty, and fast-paced.” Library Journal
“Expertly mixing humor and tragedy, Witchel’s debut novel is much more than its premise, and ends up being an absorbing, compelling read.” Booklist
