Today I met my childhood doppelgänger. Granted, it was three decades after the fact, but it was well worth the wait. Growing up a chubby Jewish kid with frizzy hair who wanted nothing more than to sing and dance and act…there was no better role model for me than Doris Schwartz; the heart of TV’s 1982-1987 series FAME.


Like Doris, I wanted to live for ever. I wanted to learn how to fly. High. I f...

" The Consequences picks up hours after The Affair ends. In the book, we again witness everything through the eyes of all three involved. I thoroughly enjoyed this book. In fact, I might have even enjoyed it more than the first. The conclusion is ve... " Read more of this review »
The Consequences by Colette Freedman
" I liked this book so much that I'm actually hoping that there is a third one in progress now. It is true that when there is an affair, there are three sides to the story. It seems that Ms. Freedman has done a tremendous amount of research to enabl... " Read more of this review »

The Consequences is the stronger book. (Freedman spends much of The Affair developing her characters. By the time The Consequences opens, they are well-developed and intrigui... " Read more of this review »

“Being a writer is an amazing job, but we’re all writers, most of us just forget to put our stories down on paper.”
Colette Freedman

“Being a writer is an amazing job, but we’re all writers, most of us just forget to put our stories down on paper.”
Colette Freedman

“Love is like quicksilver in the hand. Leave the fingers open and it stays. Clutch it and it darts away.”
Dorothy Parker
tags: love

“Because you can never go from going out to being friends, just like that. It's a lie. It's just something that people say they'll do to take the permanence out of a breakup. And someone always takes it to mean more than it does, and then is hurt even more when, inevitably, said ‘friendly' relationship is still a major step down from the previous relationship, and it's like breaking up all over again. But messier.”
Sarah Dessen, This Lullaby

“..And now you've lost the only thing that ever made you feel alive”
Keith Urban

“Like some wines our love could neither mature nor travel.”
Graham Greene, The Comedians
