    You smell like Beyoncé.

    What a great piece, Beth! And it’s good advice for this old bird who has crossed the 50 bridge and hopefully learned a few things but can always learn more. xoxoxox

  • The New York Times on “Factory Man”:

    This is Ms. Macy’s first book, but it’s in a class with other runaway debuts like Laura Hillenbrand’s “Seabiscuit” and Katherine Boo’s “Behind the Beautiful Forevers”: These nonfiction narratives are more stirring and dramatic than most novels. And Ms. Macy writes so vigorously that she hooks you instantly. You won’t be putting this book down. — Janet Maslin
