"One of the sharpest observers of human behavior around, Ephron, with her trademark mastery of smart, snappy dialogue, delivers a read-in-one-sitting, feel-good celebration of resiliency and hope."--Booklist (starred review)

"Imagine if Siegfried & Roy had written Water for Elephants... The Lion Is In is off to the races from the first sentence. [A] fun ride."--San Antonio Express News

"Readers seeking a heartfelt, offbeat adventure will adore Ephron's fragile but feisty heroines...The perfect getaway for readers who long to reconnect with their inner selves, this quirky comedy's sense of wonder will delight and inspire."--Shelf Awareness for Readers

"Three women embark on a journey of self-discovery, facilitated by a giant feline, in Ephron's whimsical but winsome third novel."--Kirkus Reviews

"A gentle fable."--O, The Oprah Magazine

"The best kind of chick lit--an engaging feminist romance from which the reader emerges with a welcome mood boost. Twinkling with wit and warmth, it also packs a moral punch: We need to forgive not just each other, but ourselves, make amends wherever we can and just ease the heck up already."--Newark Star Ledger

"A stunning portrait of two marriages coming unraveled during the stress of travel abroad. Insightful and engaging. A must-read!"--Sue Grafton, author of X

"An Italian aria, a Greek tragedy and a modern American master-piece written by Delia Ephron at the height of her powers. This is a story of two complicated marriages, one vulnerable child, and a trip to Italy that changes each of their lives forever. Secrets, lies, love raging, love dying, and the shame of unrealized potential are exposed in detail under the Sicilian sun. And, like the Moro blood oranges that grow there with abandon, the taste is both sour and sweet at once, but the bitterness that remains is not only haunting but unforgettable."--Adriana Trigiani, author of The Shoemaker's Wife

"An unusually crackling, tricky journey into the distant land of other people's marriages: their secrets, paradoxes, weaknesses, and plea-sures. Delia Ephron writes like a warm-blooded Patricia Highsmith, her sto-ry's treachery matched by a deep and easy feel for the various human, imperfect ways that people find themselves bound together, and sometimes painstakingly unbind themselves. An absorbing, tense, and original novel."--Meg Wolitzer, author of The Interestings
