"Delightful. . . funny and poignant." --People

"A mother/daughter comedy steeped in quirky characters, personal history mysteries, and no small amount of love, The Book of Polly is a delightful read about one of the world's most fundamental relationships." -Refinery29

"Hepinstall's Southern coming-of-age novel. . . [is] full of laughter and warmth and sadness. This is a warm and fresh tale." -Publishers Weekly

"The Book of Polly has heart and humor, revenge, forgiveness, redemption and a larger than life cast of pitch-perfect characters who bring to mind such Southern literary standard-bearers as Lee Smith and Fannie Flagg. Get ready to fall in love." --Mary Kay Andrews, New York Times bestselling author of The Weekenders

"I am wildly in love with The Book of Polly. Hepinstall's characters are so deeply drawn I could almost hear them breathing, and she has a gift for laying the hearts of even minor players open in a single sentence. This is a purely wonderful book about growing up, about growing old, about never going gently into any kind of night. I want everyone I ever met to read it." -Joshilyn Jackson, New York Times bestselling author of The Opposite of Everyone

"Wonderfully funny, sneaky and involving, the characters in this story are unpredictable and outrageous. If you ever pined for a mother who would take a hunting falcon as her wingman to a parent-teacher conference, Polly is the gal for you. Delicious." --Mark Childress, author of Crazy in Alabama

"Hilarious and heartfelt, I wanted to wrap my arms round this book and hug it--I loved every page." --Jamie Ford, New York Times bestselling author of Hotel on the Corner of Bitter and Sweet

"With a drink in one hand, a shotgun in the other, the inimitable Polly Havens can steer a raft through a swamp and decimate squirrels in her garden with ruthless aplomb, with time left over for all-out war with her youngest child. A hilarious, page-turning battle royale between mother and daughter--where the weapon of choice is love." -Wilton Barnhardt, author of Lookaway, Lookaway

"The Book of Polly is rich with the best kind of humor: quick, smart wit that strikes a perfect balance between wistfully inquisitive Willow and her mother, the one and only, Polly." --Jill McCorkle, author of Life After Life
