Hot Flashes

'“As important as The Group and The Women’s Room . . . A novel so entertaining you’ll be annoyed to have it end . . . Every once in a while, a novelist comes along whose eye for detail is so precise that you wonder if she’s read your private journal. Barbara Raskin is just such a writer.” —Cosmopolitan   “Hot, flashy and wonderful! . . .Plenty of flashes here—of wit, humor, insight, anger . . . It builds to a conclusion that is powerful, moving and hopeful.” —The Cincinnati Post   “Enchanting, entrancing, ennobling, all-encompassing.” —West Coast Review of Books   “A surprisingly jaunty trek through drugs, divorce, diets, drink, leftist politics, sex, stretch marks, station wagons and wasted talents.” —Los Angeles Times   “A landmark women’s novel, something akin to Mary McCarthy’s The Group in the ’50s and Marilyn French’s The Women’s Room in the ’70s.” —People   “Funny, perceptive, outrageous, and sad . . . [Hot Flashes] has done for menopause what Philip Roth did for masturbation [in Portnoy’s Complaint].” —The Washington Post   “[A] cross between Fear of Flying and The Big Chill . . . Filled with laughter, tears, love and hate—like life itself.” —Booklist  '
