Praise

Leslie’s tongue-in-cheek essay, “I Hate Everybody” was lauded by Katie Couric on the Today Show and in Business Week Magazine.

Reviews appeared in Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Atlantic Monthly, O, Parents, Self, Child, Parenting, and in newspapers across the country. Leslie was inundated with personal letters, including this one:

“Your essay has made me break down and openly cry over my broccoli cheddar soup. I’m mortified, but so grateful to find such a true description of motherhood. I’ll be looking for more of your work, and sharing it with friend. Thank you so much.”
