"Addictive...quietly stunning." (Four stars)

""The Florist's Daughter" is Hampl's finest, most powerful book yet.... Hampl proves that the material closest to home is often the richest...a wonder of a memoir."

PRAISE FOR PATRICIA HAMPL "Better than any writer at work today, Hampl knows how to welcome and sustain her reader in what she calls, in one of many characteristic insights that grace this book, the 'fascinatingly indeterminate narrative space between fiction and documentary' that is memoir." --Alice Kaplan, author of "French Lessons", "The Collaborator", and "The Interpreter"


""The Florist''s Daughter"creates context. It yields perspective. It makes sitting, waiting, aching and watching honorable, restores our sense of purpose. It also yields some of the most glorious sentences and narrative framing you will find anywhere. Hampl''s childhood may have been ordinary by the standards of James Frey or Lauren Slater, but her talents as a writer render it far more meaningful, and resonant."

--Beth Kephart"Chicago Tribune" (10/27/2007)
