Quotes & Awards

  • “If you believe that all the sexy, interesting, and hip people live only in New York or LA, then you need to read this book. In Liberating Paris, Linda Bloodworth Thomason hilariously succeeds in debunking that misguided notion once and for all, while introducing us to a cast of characters you will not soon forget. Her writing is passionate, intelligent, and witty, a winning combination that not only touches your heart, but just might change your mind.”

    Fannie Flagg, author of Fried Green Tomatoes at the Whistle Stop Café

  • Liberating Paris is a seamless work of fiction about the contemporary South deconstructing itself. It can stand with the very best of novels out of this strange country. Thomason’s people are, like this hybrid South itself, cantankerous, vulnerable, deeply affecting, wonderfully funny, and totally unforgettable. And her prose is so springwater clear and fine that it made me stop and take a deep breath many times over. Hurrah for Linda Bloodworth Thomason. Writing well is the best revenge.”

    Anne Rivers Siddons, New York Times bestselling author

  • “Thomason’s novel is engaging and heartwarming, with down-to-earth humor and emotionally charged drama…[A] first-rate debut.”

    RT Book Reviews (4½ stars, Top Pick!)

  • “Splendid, often hilarious…A thicket of sideplots—including the unwelcome arrival of a chain discount megastore, Mavis’ quest to find a sperm donor, and Brundidge’s long-distance romance with a New Yorker—give the novel a rich, layered feel. Poignant, welcoming, and warmly funny, this is an irresistible page-turner.”

    Publishers Weekly (starred review)

  • “[Thomason] brings her trademark talent for combining humor with humility, intelligence with insouciance, to a sparkling debut novel that chronicles one exceptional year for a circle of longtime friends…Thomason excels at creating larger-than-life yet down-to-earth characters, endowing them with endearing flaws, enriching wisdom, and ennobling courage.”
