The House on Crash Corner: And Other Unavoidable Calamities

Sardonic, funny, insightful, and completely honest, Mindy Greenstein's The House on Crash Corner: And Other Unavoidable Calamities is, according to New York Times columnist David Brooks, "poignant, sometimes even hilarious." Through anecdotes that are humorous, moving and sometimes sarcastic, Mindy Greenstein shares her unusual life and sharp insights.

Mindy moves from a Yiddish-speaking, Orthodox Jewish upbringing by holocaust survivors, to becoming an expert gunslinger and prison psychologist, an Upper West Side yuppie mom, a therapist for cancer patients and then, ironically, a cancer survivor herself. Whether she's studying for the GREs in her boyfriend's bathtub, counseling cancer victims, coming to terms with her own illness, or reluctantly heeding her mother's parenting tips, Greenstein's observations are wise and witty, her experiences both funny and surprising.

Chosen as One of the "Ten Titles to Pick Up Now" in the May issue of "O, The Oprah Magazine"
