WESA says it’s like Eat, Pray, Love, only funny.
“This is a very interesting story that she has to tell…”
“Can help you reach a place where you can accept what happened…you give them the tools.”
“A hopeful read exploring the complexities of navigating cultural and societal expectations abroad.”
WCBS’ Pat Farnack discusses Hello American Lady Creature with Lisa Kirchner.
Sometimes all you want is to read about someone else’s life: the good, the bad, and the yoga classes. The narrative of Hello American Lady Creature is packed with plenty of loss… but it ends in soaring redemption.
The book is absolutely intriguing. Kirchner’s cultural experiences in the Middle East are very revealing. Her vivid recollections are thoughtful and wonderfully written. She often compares her Western ways to the people she meets in Qatar and shares observations about everything from food and pets to careers and relationships.
Lisa Kirchner talks with Jo Good on the BBC about death, divorce and yoga for getting over it all.
