“Reading Polly Frank’s essays is like taking a walk around the block with an observant and warm-hearted sister: you come away charmed, enlightened, and refreshed. This polished author offers a mature yet lively take on just about every contemporary subject: dieting,basketball, cats, t-shirts, books, motherhood, tutoring refugees, European travel, and yes, mortality. Her gratitude for the simple things and her spirit in the face of life’s challenges shine through on each page. The Woman in the Mirror is the perfect book to give to a friend, or to keep for yourself to dip into in a quiet moment—but then, it will be hard to put it down.”
— Jeanne Julian, author of Blossoms and Loss
“Deceptively simple, these little pieces taken from everyday life touch on all the big subjects. Polly has found the magic formula for drawing the reader into her world – as informally as if we were sharing a cup of tea. Gently and subtly, she leads us to review our own experiences – whether similar to hers or completely different.” — Laura Alpern, author of Manischewitz: the Matzo Family: The Making of an American Jewish Icon
“Polly Frank’s witty style and unique observations of life events, great and small, infuse her essays with fresh and often humorous insights. While always a delight at first reading, the thoughts and ideas from her pieces linger, having a warm and lasting effect that calls for more.” — Sharon Phennah, author of You Can’t Iron a Wrinkled Birthday Suit
