The Professors’ Wives’ Club – Reviews
"As an NYU alum, I enjoyed the behind-the-scenes escapades at the fictional Manhattan U. in The Professors’ Wives’ Club. Joanne Rendell has created a quick, fun read about a wonderful group of friends."
Kate Jacobs, New York Times bestselling author of The Friday Night Knitting Club
"The four women in The Professors’ Wives’ Club who risk it all in pursuit of life, love, and green space in New York City are smart, funny and real — friends you’d want for life. Rendell doesn’t shy away from tough issues, but her light touch and readable prose make this charming first novel a delight."
Christina Baker Kline, author of The Way Life Should Be
"Joanne Rendell’s irresistible debut novel is a captivating look at an ivory tower Peyton Place filled with intrigue, heartbreak and hope."
Michelle Yu and Blossom Kan, authors of China Dolls
"As a self-absorbed undergrad I never realized that the really juicy stuff was going on outside of the frat parties and late nights at the library! The women of The Professors’ Wives’ Club are a force with which to be reckoned. Joanne Rendell’s debut novel is smart and suspenseful with an intriguing Edgar Allan Poe back-story. I cannot wait for Joanne’s second novel"
Robin Kall, host of Reading With Robin, a WHJJ Providence radio show
"Joanne Rendell has created characters who will inspire, entertain and keep you hooked from the very first moment you meet them. I loved spending time with these ladies and only wish The Professors’ Wives’ Club were a bit longer so I could have more time with these wonderful women."
