Nobody Will Tell You This But Me is available at, Barnes & Noble and your local library.

A Jewish “matrilineal love story” uniquely narrated by a voice from beyond the grave.

TV writer Bess Kalb employs a charming narrative device, channeling the voice and personality of her now-deceased grandmother Bobby. Outspoken and persnickety, Bobby snares readers’ attention right from her first comments about how “degrading” and boring being dead actually is. Drawn from both a generous selection of family images and a text grounded in the family’s Jewish heritage, the narrative skillfully captures Bobby’s wit, worldly advice, well-intentioned meddling, and enduring love for her granddaughter. -Kirkus Reviews
