Reviews & Blurbs

“I knew that Amy Ferris was a brilliant satirist, but in this marvel of a book she guides us into deeper and deeper considerations of everything that matters: mothers, partners, friendships, work–and the body’s many betrayals. I laughed, but was also moved to tears. Every line was a revelation–read it and your thoughts about your own life will be forever changed.”
– Carol Jenkins, President, The Women’s Media Center

 

“Marrying George Clooney is a wonderful read. It is disarmingly candid, and laugh-out-loud hysterical.”
– John Berendt, Author, “Midnight in the Garden of Good and Evil”

 

“Marrying George Clooney” takes you for a ride into the wacky, wonderful, marvelously moving mind of a modern menopausal woman. It’s a no holes barred exploration of what makes ALL of us tick…men and women! I applaud Amy Ferris’ tenacity, humor, and courage. Raging hormones will never be the same!”
– Kristi Zea, Film Director and Production Designer: Revolutionary Road, The Departed, Goodfellas, Silence of the Lambs

 

“Amy Ferris is (forget the word “arguably”) the most original voice of memory to come along in the last decade.”
– Carolyn Howard-Johnson, Award-winning novelist and poet

 

“This book, this perfect gem, makes me want to stay in a midlife crisis forever, it’s that good! Funny. Delicious. Poignant – someday I hope to describe a relationship like that – but in the meantime, this book is staying next to me on the night table.”
– Carla Singer, Television and Movie Producer

 

“Amy Ferris has successfully combined a rip-roaringly funny page-turner, with an unvarnished account of the personal history that formed her. This gut-wrenching look at intimate relationships will resonate with readers because of the universality of its raw emotion, clarity of vision, and self-revealing courage. Destined to become a classic of Feminist literature.”
– Marcia G. Yerman, Huffington Post, Writer/Artist/Activist

 

“PREPARE TO LAUGH, CRY, AND NOT BE ABLE TO PUT “MARRYING GEORGE CLOONEY” DOWN TILL YOU’VE READ EVERY DELICIOUS PAGE. BREATHES THERE A WOMAN OF A CERTAIN AGE WHO CAN’T RELATE, ESPECIALLY AT 3:00 AM.”
– Gloria Feldt, co-author with Kathleen Turner of the best-seller, “Send Yourself Roses”; blogger at GloriaFeldt.com

 

“The profundity sneaks up on you in Amy Ferris’ irresistible little memoir. One second you’re laughing your ass off because Amy is bitching about her husband’s Cialis-fueled sex drive, and the next you’re crying because she’s curled up on a hospital bed with her dying mother. Ultimately, Marrying George Clooney is so surprisingly radical because it’s so frickin’ real. You can’t help but see yourself in Amy’s wanderings and wonderings, and even forgive yourself a little in the process.”
– Courtney E. Martin, Author, “Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters”

 

“Amy Ferris is the menopausal David Sedaris.”
-Sean Strub, Writer, Activist, Founder of Poz Magazine

 

“Marrying George Clooney is smart, funny, wise, poignant, and true. I am sure it will speak to all women.”
– Suzanne Braun Levine, author, “50 is the New Fifty,” and “Inventing the Rest of Our Lives”

 

“This little book contains a lethal combination; it’s honest, brave and hilarious. There is no ground too sacred for Ferris to tread upon, even her own marriage, if it means shedding light to generously help another soul smart enough, lucky enough, daring enough to read her.”
– Patricia Elam, author of “Breathing Room”

 

“I absolutely love this book! Amy tells it like it is, she opens her heart and shares her feelings with no hidden agenda – it is very refreshing. She made me really laugh, and she made me reflect on my own experiences with menopause. I could not put the book down, and I did not want the book to end.”
– Dr. Sylvia Jimenez Krause, Bio-Identical HR Pioneer, Surgeon
