Joanne Greenberg, also known as Hannah Green, is a writer whose style lends itself to the mature reader yet simultaneously presents themes suitable for all ages. Greenberg addresses the persistent doubts that plague all of us by relating stories of others in need. Though the scenarios in which her characters find themselves may be unfamiliar to the average reader, the emotions they feel while enmeshed in the plotlines are universal in appeal and scope. Her works include magazine publications, short stories, novels, and a movie adaptation of her book, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden.

“There is nothing that you can do to me that my own craziness doesn't do to me smarter and faster and better.”
Joanne Greenberg, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

“I once had a patient who used to practice the most horrible tortures on himself, and when I asked him why he did such things, he said, 'Why, before the world does them.' I asked him then, 'Why not wait and see what the world will do?' and he said, 'Don't you see? It always come at last, but this way at least I am master of my own destruction.”
Joanne Greenberg, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden

“The people on the edge of Hell were most afraid of the devil; for those already in hell the devil was only another and no one in particular.”
Joanne Greenberg, I Never Promised You a Rose Garden
