This book is funny, poignant, and extremely timely. I come from the actual town in New Jersey where The New Town Librarian is set. What a delight to read about Italian Americans in their southern Jersey habitat, a rare occurrence in most fiction, and Anderson depicts them every bit as warm and as colorful as I know them to be.
Gail Reitano, author of Italian Love Cake
The New Town Librarian is fresh as a summer breeze, full of promise and hope the way Nan describes it, "Hope felt like that third glass of wine on a rainy night, a little luxury to warm herself by."
Larry Benjamin, Lambda Literary Award-winning author of Excellent Sons: A Love Story in Three Acts
I'm still thinking about Nan Nethercott and the inhabitants of Pinetree, New Jersey, long after I've finished The New Town Librarian. Kathy Anderson knows what makes memorable characters tick and, unsurprisingly, it's their big, messy hearts.
Jen Michalski, author of You'll Be Fine and The Company of Strangers
Liberating, entertaining, and rejuvenating, The New Town Librarian was a breath of fresh air. The narrative is humorous, witty, and so funny that I had a hard time putting it down. I read this story in a single sitting, and credit goes to Kathy Anderson.– Readers' Favorite
