The Quality of Life Report
Praise For The Quality of Life Report: A Novel…
— New York Times Book Review
A crisp, wisecracking voice . . . an admirably nuanced view of the American heartland.
— New Yorker
Funny, literate . . . this is a surprising, entertaining, and often touching story of a single woman lurching into her thirties looking for love and fulfillment, but mostly just finding herself. Top quality.
Daum has a charming, breezy style and a pretty wicked sense of humor. . . . The Quality of Life Report is great fun.
— USA Today
The simple life never looked so complicated.
