Small Pieces is beautiful, incredibly moving and, at times, extremely funny. -- Christina Patterson * Guardian * Gripping, heart-breaking, challenging - this memoir about a family in crisis is a must-read. * Sophie Hannah * Talented and thoughtful * Hilary Mantel on Joanne Limburg * With startling insight and humour, she weighs the peculiar burdens and joys of family and faith. * Marina Benjamin * powerful memoir... a courageous piece of work and a valuable contribution to our understanding of mental health issues, and indeed suicide. * Jewish Chronicle * Touching... Joanne describes the events surrounding the deaths of her brother and mother with extreme pathos. * Jewish Telegraph * Can a writer be too honest? At times you want to close this book to protect its subject. -- Hilary Mantel * Guardian on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * Sharply self-aware... An articulate guide to the workings of the tormented mind. * Daily Telegraph on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * A painstaking account of life dominated by debilitating anxiety... Exceptional... [with] rare poetic insight, her candid narrative evokes both pity and admiration. * Metro on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * [Limburg] brings the clear, unsentimental poet's eye to her personal history... Moving and compelling, full of dark humour and insight. * Sunday Business Post on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * Judicious and elegant, lucid and spry, Joanne Limburg uses her uncommon gifts to anatomise an all-too-common disorder. She brings a sort of glee to the process: for all the unhappiness she describes, this remains a joyous read. * Kate Clanchy on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH * Brave, witty, intelligent, wise, and honest, it is the story of a lifelong battle with neurosis, but it transcends pathology, uncovering the extraordinary underside of all our 'ordinary' consciousness. Her unremitting candour liberates us all. * Raymond Tallis on THE WOMAN WHO THOUGHT TOO MUCH *
