on Aug. 31, 2012 :
Laura Jensen transforms both dramatic moments and ordinary events of life with extraordinary prose to reveal depths and crannies of true humanity. I found myself thinking about what had happened in my own life, often with people and in situations that had been long forgotten, as I read "Step by Step." Many readers and all writers would profit from perusing her delightful creative non-fiction.
