"When I was nine, my aunt Jane lost her way and came to live with us. My mother said she lost her way because she had a broken heart—there was some man in New Mexico. My father said she'd been lost before that. Still, he agreed D.C. would be a good place for her because of the jobs. But Jane wasn't interested in looking for a job. What she was interested in was her broken heart."

"Will it make us feel safer if the world’s 300 million native Arabic speakers stop having natural conversations in airports and other public settings? I don’t think so. I think we need to hear Arabic in exactly these settings. It’s the only way that we’ll begin to associate the language with its manifold, nuanced meanings, rather than its limited, extremist ones."

Caitlin Kindervatter-Clark "balances humor and grief the way a skilled bartender mixes a drink; she makes the complex look easy. '12 Steps' is funny without being trivial, sad but not overwhelmingly so, intelligent but not pretentious, casually pretty (a tough trick to pull off). Her story could easily fall into despair, but the hope is too strong. The writing is too strong."
