Anna Gotlieb is many things. A mother of children, themselves almost on the verge of adulthood. A wife. A daughter and sister. An author. A Jew who rediscovered her heritage. An American. In her busy, productive, activity-filled life, Mrs. Gotlieb somehow finds the time to observe. She collects impressions, finds stray truths that others, in their haste, may pass right by. In the ordinary flow of days she finds the extraordinary. She looks at everyday life with a marvelous mixture of humor and delight, mingled with a deep appreciation for the blessings around her. And she shares. She shares her impressions, thoughts, feelings and hard-won knowledge with her readers. In essays sketched with all the spare deftness of an artist, Anna Gotlieb gives us a new perspective on life and live, on her world and ours. Like a porcelain miniature, perfect in its smallness, each of these short essays captures something essential and lovely in our world. In Other Words gives us more than just a talented author; in this superb collection of writings we meet a wise and caring friend.
