Reviews

"Rinaldi yields insights through her willingness to reveal the messy way she muddles through the year... Unlike other recent memoirs in which a woman, finding her life wanting, learns what frightens her and emerges with a stronger sense of self, this one, to its credit, doesn't go for the Hallmark-card ending." --Elle"Brutally honest and real . . . Refreshing" --The Daily Beast"A sexual-awakening romp wrapped in a female-empowerment narrative" --The Washington Post"If you want to read something about somebody who might be a lot like you, somebody who's brave enough to admit that she doesn't always (or even usually) know what she's doing but she does it anyway, somebody who won't preach at you or make you feel like you have it even less together than you do--then you can't NOT read this book." --Sara Nelson, Omnivoracious"A stunning report . . . Readers will be provoked and fascinated by Rinaldi's forthright memoir of daredevil sexual exploration and self-liberation." --Booklist"Rinaldi does not hide the dark side to this odyssey . . . her ability to grasp its soul-driving necessity without insisting on winning over her readers renders this a notable work of self-knowledge." --Publishers Weekly"A sensitive, intimate and bold story." --Kirkus"Robin Rinaldi's horizontal adventures will make you howl with laughter and cry with recognition--whatever the state of your romantic or sex life. And you'll stay up all night reading to learn how it all turns out. Her bravery and introspection are inspiring to anyone who has taken a moment to wonder: Is there more to life than this?" --Amy Sohn, author of The Actress and Prospect Park West"Her daring project and avid search for passion is a true page-turner. For anyone who's wondered 'what if' or 'should I?'" --Library Journal"The Wild Oats Project uniquely chronicles an intelligent woman's exhilarating pilgrimage into the rest of her life, living as she damn well pleases. And why not? Men have been doing so since the beginning of time. Rinaldi's memoir is groundbreaking, sexy, and a joy to read." --Suzanne Finnamore, author of Split: A Memoir of Divorce"Robin Rinaldi's The Wild Oats Project is a daring and enlightening exploration of sexual identity, marriage, and the search for an authentic self. Rinaldi takes the reader on an enthralling journey, one that will not soon be forgotten. The Wild Oats Project is a rich and essential read." --Laura van den Berg, author of The Isle of Youth"I loved this brave and inspiring book. Rinaldi rejects middle-aged quiescence in favor of living boldly, sensually, and to the hilt. Would that we all were so brave." --Julia Scheeres, New York Times bestselling author of Jesus Land"Extraordinarily frank . . . Her book is important because of the way it unashamedly puts the quest for female sexual fulfillment centre stage . . . It is a testament to how far feminism has taken us all that a woman can not only undertake such an adventure but write about it so brazenly. And in a porn-saturated world where, too often, the lens through which we see sex is masculine, her unapologetic account of her search for sexual nirvana is hugely refreshing." --Sunday Times"[Rinaldi] seduces us with her candor and vulnerability" --Chicago Tribune Rinaldi yields insights through her willingness to reveal the messy way she muddles through the year...
