“Above all, be the heroine of your life, not the victim.” —Nora Ephron

It’s nice to still be getting reviews like this on the two-year anniversary of Tender Cuts. I’m grateful to the writer Ann S. Epstein for her thoughtful consideration. She writes:

An Astonishing Range of Subjects and Emotions. The collected vignettes in Tender Cuts by Jane Martin cover an astonishing range of subjects and emotions. Many are mournful, depicting lives filled with bitter regret. In others, protagonists exact sweet revenge against those who have hurt or disappointed them. Tales that flow with melancholy break your heart, while quick jabs break the rhythm of your breathing. Each vignette is economical without being skimpy. After reading one, you never want more or wish for less. 


I love that she also calls the book “economical without being skimpy.”
