A Cluttered Life

Kind Words

~From Reviewers, Bloggers, and Fellow Authors~

"An affecting and humorous account of one talented woman's search for organization and meaning . . . Dinnerstein's revelations amass like slowly unearthed jewels through writing, therapy and even Clutterer's Anonymous. A poignant visit with her mother, an unexpected home purchase and the trauma of 9/11 combine in a breathtaking journey that delivers kabbalistic wisdom."
~Kirkus Book Reviews

"A memoir filled with motivating quotes and thought-provoking paradoxes . . . The topic, ordinarily a heavy burden for many of us, is lightened by Dinnerstein's humorous insight and honesty."
~Story Circle Reviews

"One woman's quest for spirituality, simplicity, balance and meaning in life. Filled with humour and loads of wisdom, A Cluttered Life is a wonderful read, whether you're a chronic clutterer or not . . . To pronounce this book uplifting and insightful would be selling it short."
~Richmond Review

"Written for anyone who has felt the pull between the chaos of everyday living and the longing for a rich spiritual life . . . This book is a journey and Dinnerstein is a faithful guide who does not close off any part of her life to her readers."

"Although the book will not provide the solution to the mystery of the continually misplaced keys, it will provide an enlightening, entertaining view of one woman's difficult transition from unmanageable material world to beginning a life of spiritual fulfillment."

~The Guilty Parent Blog (www.theguiltyparent.com)

"A deeply personal and introspective account of one woman's resolution to finally gain control over a lifetime of disorganized living . . . Brave indeed is the writer who can disclose to this extent."
~Fine Line Organizing (www.finelineorganizing.com)

"Who can stand clutter? But Dinnerstein's is irresistible. If God is hiding in Pesi's clutter, so are friends, husbands, recipes, boyfriends, W2 forms, and the kind of laughter that makes your sides split and your soul open."
~Ruchama King Feuerman, author of Seven Blessings and Everyone's Got a Story

"A Cluttered Life takes us on Dinnerstein's exuberant journey from physical mess to spiritual wholeness. From the first sentence on, the book is filled with wit, humor, and astute insights into the nature of clutter and its connection to spiritual growth. One of the most enjoyable and enlightening books I have read in my lifetime—and one of the funniest!"
~Yitta Halberstam, author of Holy Brother and coauthor of the best-selling Small Miracles series

"If you liked Eat, Pray, Love, you'll love A Cluttered Life. With rip-open-the-gut honesty, Dinnerstein stares her demons in the face. But it's the roaring humor throughout that gets you to follow her lead. Where was I before this book?"
~Judith Leventhal, coauthor of the best-selling Small Miracles series
