No offense, Mr. Pomerance, but I'm not going to bother continuing into chapter two... ...because I literally want to wait until I can hold the entire book in my hands! Honestly. Your chapter one hits everything just right. I get the perfect sense of time, place, and character. Whether I like it or not, I become a part of Susan's life through the power of your words alone, a testament to your skill as a writer. I've been where she's at, we all have, and I think "Women Like Us" is going to be a wonderful and true examination of deep, real human emotion that I cannot wait to read the rest of. Thanks very much!
