Good In A Crisis

GOOD IN A CRISIS by Margaret Overton is one of Barbara Hoffert's “Ten Memoirs I Want You to Read” from the Prepub Alert feature of the October 15th issue of Library Journal.

“[A] memoir that is by turn funny, philosophical and poignant. And…inspiring.
    —Toronto Star

“Good in a Crisis” is a reminder that life can change in an instant, and that no matter how horrible the circumstances may seem, we can almost always adapt.
    —Roanoke Times

“…A truly moving memoir from a real person who has lived a real life.

Overton writes [a] funny, touching memoir Good in a Crisis, published in paperback earlier this year, [which] feels honest and authentic.

Overton's experiences are at once unique and universal, and this is exactly what makes Good in a Crisis work so well.

It is perfectly balanced—introspective without being self–indulgent, inspiring without being condescending.

Overton's book should be required reading for anyone stumbling through middle life, if not to better understand themselves, then to acquire perspective on the real–world struggles of those around them.”
