In sweet company: conversations with extraordinary women about living a spiritual lifeUser Review - Book Verdict
Journalist Wolff (cofounder, Anjali Foundation) has assembled an interesting collection of interviews with notable women, including actress Olympia Dukakis, Sister Helen Prejean, (Dead Man Walking ), dancer Katherine Dunham, and Rabbi Laura Geller. No single message can emerge from spirits of such a rich variety, except, perhaps, as Wolff remarks, "We refuse to take 'no' for an answer." The candor of these eminent women ought to attract many readers. For most collections.
