Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

Trigiani’s writing is as dazzling as Lucia’s dresses. USA Today
“Seamlessly superb storytelling . . . Trigiani never loses hold of the hearts of her characters–or of the wisdom that tragedy and redemption are also part of life. St. Louis Post-Dispatch
This heartwarming tale is full of lessons about taking risks in life and love. Cosmopolitan
Lucia, Lucia
Moving and poignant . . . Trigiani has again defied categorization. She is more than a one-hit wonder, more than a Southern writer, more than a women’s novelist. She is an amazing young talent. Richmond Times-Dispatch
Full-bodied and elegantly written . . . [Trigiani builds The Queen of the Big Time] around an old-fashioned love story. . . . Pure pleasure. The Washington Post Book World
