"Jakiela is a master at weaving past and present together; at creating a seamless picture between who she was, who she has become, and who she does not remember--the self that she cannot grasp. Her memoir is like a recipe: "a proof of an exchange, a transaction between generations" Imbued with raw feelings of love and doubt, Belief Is Its Own Kind of Truth, Maybe is an unforgettable story from the first page to the last." -- JMWW
"Lori Jakiela is the queen of the wise one-liner. Fiercely sad and heartbreakingly funny, The Bridge to Take When Things Get Serious is about the mystery of the people closest to us-how they drive us crazy and why we need them so much."
