A Mother's Kisses: A Novel

'“Abounds with brilliant scenes and sufficient comic characters to populate a dozen novels, so rich and profligate is Friedman’s inventiveness. A marvelously gifted novelist.” —Newsweek   “A Mother’s Kisses is an even funnier book than Stern. . . . Anxiety rides every page and wit is wounding.” —Time   “Synopsizing a Friedman plot is like making a tracing of the Mona Lisa. You can reproduce the shape and dimensions perfectly but nothing that reveals the work’s unique quality. . . . Run, push, play dirty. But get a copy of A Mother’s Kisses immediately.” —The New York Times Book Review   “So unbelievably fine that it makes you want to fall down and chew on your hat and weep . . .You read three or four pages and you find yourself out of breath.” —The Plain Dealer   “A horror comedy . . . Friedman, not content to tip over Whistler’s mother’s chair, uses his book like a steel whip on some cozy acceptances of family and social life.” —Stanley Kauffmann, Life   “Hilarious, mordant. Meg is the most fabulous mother in modern fiction.” —Saturday Review   “Hugely entertaining, insightful . . . [The] story-to-end-all-stories about mother and son relationships.” —Library Journal  '
