About Joyce Maynard
Joyce Maynard was a freshman at Yale when she published her memorable New York Times cover story, "An Eighteen Year Old Looks Back at Life." Her most recent novel, To Die For, is now a movie produced by Columbia Pictures. She lives in Keene, New Hamphire, with her three children.
"This is a splendid, heartfelt novel that knows far too much about what is going wrong between men and women in these strange and dizzying times. Joyce Maynard's subject is love, but her gift is presenting it in all its many masks and stoney guises as men and women blunder toward each other with all the tenderness of their wounds open for all to see. Her book feels real enough to live in."
-- Pat Conroy
"Where Love Goes is a novel that has the intimacy and directness of a voice whispering in your ear. It is about love, loss, memory, music, men, women, children -- and how they drag us kicking and screaming into adulthood. A lovely book. And true."
-- Erica Jong
"The subject here is love, between parents and kids, husbands and wives, and lovers -- how we beat each other up with it, misplace and misunderstand it, and fall on our swords over it, then find the touchingly human bravery to get up the next day and start pursuing it again. Joyce Maynard has written a pitch-perfect, wise, heartbreaking, and ultimately triumphant book."
-- Charles Gaines
"Funny, tender, and true...Maynard's best yet."
-- Kirkus Reviews
