"In her two decades of writing, Elinor Lipman has populated her fictional universe with characters so utterly real that we feel like they're old friends. Now she shares an even more intimate world with us-her own-in essays that offer a candid, charming take on modern life. Looking back and forging ahead, she considers the subjects that matter most: childhood and condiments, long marriage and solo living, career and politics. In these stories you'll find the lighthearted as well as the serious and profound. Whether for Lipman's longtime readers or those who love the essays of Nora Ephron or Anna Quindlen, I Can't Complain is a diverting delight"

Professional reviews

"One couldn't ask for a better narrator for this wonderful collection of personal remembrances than its author, Elinor Lipman. Lipman, who has written many acclaimed and popular novels, has a pleasant voice with the perfect lift and enthusiasm for the funny pieces; "Sex Ed" is one of the many laugh-out-loud essays in the collection. And her voice's gentle resonance enhances the most moving essays, including those that may make the listener weep. One of those, "Nine Months Passed," about her beloved husband's illness and death, causes Lipman audibly to tear up and recover while reading. It's just such moments that make this a particularly special listening experience. Prepare to be enchanted. A.C.S. (c) AudioFile 2013, Portland, Maine"
