“An engrossing and compassionate collection showing motherhood in its most unrelenting form.” - Kirkus, starred review
“Rosaler writes of Mimi’s ongoing struggle from firsthand experience and instills in her protagonist such fierce resolve to do all she can for her son while simultaneously limning awkward episodes with ironic humor; the reader becomes immersed in all that the diagnosis of autism in one’s child must entail.” - Booklist
“It’s about time someone wrote a humorous novel that shines a light on the plight of parents who are coping with unbearable stress and impossible challenges while raising their amazing, special-needs kids.” - New York Parenting
“The title, taken from the 1950s reality TV show that pitted downtrodden housewives against one another for prizes, hints at Rosaler’s ironic humor. These stories are not happy, but are a testament to resilience and perseverance, and a glance into lives that many are spared.” - Shelf Awareness, Cheryl Krocker McKeon, manager, Book Passage, San Francisco
“Few have written fiction about these situations, and Rosaler does so with humor, wisdom and a big heart. She reveals much about love and marriage and New York life.” - New York Jewish Week
“A story that each of us needs to read. Queen for a Day...exposes an ugly underworld of doctors and bureaucrats...although woven with unbearable frustrations and fears [it] ultimately reveals lives that grow in love, acceptance and gratitude.” - Los Angeles Jewish Journal
“An inherently compelling, and exceptionally well-written novel by an author with a genuine flair for narrative storytelling and the creation of memorable characters, Maxine Rosaler’s Queen for a Day is an extraordinary read from beginning to end.” - Midwest Book Review
