Reviews

"Theo has a big heart, a real feeling for the pain and craziness of human life."
--Frank McCourt, author of Angela's Ashes

"Theo Nestor has an uncommon ability to evoke common yet very intense emotions. How to Sleep Alone in a King-Size Bed is smart, astringent, funny, precise, candid, and possesses not an ounce of self-pity."
--David Shields, author of The Thing About Life Is That One Day You'll Be Dead "Heartbreakingly honest, wryly funny, and revelatory . . . [Nestor's] clever and relatable prose makes her tale endearing and insightful, and she sidesteps the cliches of a woman wounded with bittersweet honesty."
--LadiesHomeJournal.com "A divorced mother's funny, chatty, revealing take on Splitsville-with just enough anguish and sadness to be utterly believable...An unexpected treat here is a vivid portrait of the author's thrice-married, utterly nonmaternal but generous mother...Women going through the pain and turmoil of separation and divorce will appreciate Nestor's candor and wit. Not another slick how-to, but a comforting reminder that life goes on after the spouse is gone." --Kirkus
