Product description


[Schwartz] shares her humanity with her readers. These essays are candid, refreshingly modest. --Diane White, The Boston Globe

"In Face to Face . . . Schwartz resembles one of her fictional characters: a sensitive family-oriented semibohemian whose tastes are literary but refreshingly unstuffy and whose sense of humor tends toward the sly and offbeat." --Diane Cole, The New York Times Book Review

"Marvelous. . . . Near-flawless reflections on experiences generously savored, couched in an ever-inventive prose." -Michael Upchurch, Seattle Times

About the Author
