great new book choice


I'm the only one I've ever talked to who thinks so, but I'm not much of an Anita Diamant fan....I think she writes like a man and doesn't have much of an original voice....but I've only read the Red Tent...maybe her other book(s?) are better.


she writes like a man

Such harsh criticism! :)


I don't know what you mean "like a man," but her writing certainly didn't knock me out in this book by any means. I liked "The Red Tent," but again -- it wasn't her writing that made me like it! I enjoyed the story.

Marcia Conner

Fan or not of Anita Diamant's fiction, please consider reading her autobiographical essays (originally written as news columns) in Pitching Her Tent. I wasn't gaga over either Dogtown or Good Harbor, but truly loved hearing her voice on topics dear to her heart.


That's how I first knew of her -- many of those pieces appeared in the Boston Globe first! She's a local gal.
