Beautifully written and very funny. . . as with Salinger and Carver, there is crystalline simplicity to Bank's prose * Guardian *
I read the first chapter and thought, 'Wait, I know this girl' . . . I realized she was my friend . . . she made me laugh, she made me weep, and when I closed the book at the end of the day, I knew I'd never forget her -- Ruth Ozeki
Charming and funny * New York Times *
A smart, ruefully funny chronicle of a modern young woman's search for love . . . a model of well-crafted narrative building to a thoughtful, hopeful conclusion. Bank has created a delightful heroine who deserves her happy ending-even though any reader who has really been paying attention to the sharp, unsentimental details knows that all happy endings are provisional * Kirkus *
One marvels at Bank's assured control of her material, her witty, distinctive voice and her ability to find comedy, pathos and drama in ordinary lives . . . phenomenally good * Publishers Weekly *
This chronicle of a New Yorker's relationships has a wit and perceptiveness that singles it out from the crowd * Guardian *
As hilarious as Girls' Guide is, there's a wise, serious core here * Wall Street Journal *
A sexy, pour-your-heart-out, champagne tingle of a read-thoughtful, wise, and tell-all honest. Bank's is a voice that you'll remember * Cosmopolitan *
Bank writes like John Cheever, but funnier * Los Angeles Times *
