Finally saw that Entertainment Weekly review

It wasn't easy, but I finally got my hands on a copy of that issue of EW that has a review of the audiobook edition of Secret Confessions of the Applewood PTA. My favorite quote:

"Kudrow pulls off a comic tour de force .... Raunchy, absurd and entertaining in the extreme." A-

Not only that, but check out the company we were in. The other audiobooks reviewed in Jennifer Reese's article were Ernest Hemingway's The Sun Also Rises, narrated by Wiliam Hurt (B+), Erica Jong's Fear of Flying, narrated by Hope Davis (A-), Wendy Wasserstein's Elements of Style, narrated by Cynthia Nixon (B+), Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, narrated by Sissy Spacek (A-), and Dennis Lehane's Coronado, narrated by Stanley Tucci (B-).

This is OUTstanding, Ellen! And having listened to the audio book, I'm not surprised at all (the only thing that surprises me is that it didn't get an A+!). This audiobook would make a great holiday gift for people.

Outstanding, indeed! A well earned A!

Wow! This is HOT news. Congrats, Ellen (and Lisa)!

Just read your EW review. How wonderful! I think it's awesome that they included your wonderful book (as it should be included!) in their review section. You go girl! I can't wait for the next one to come out.
