Fiona Maazel Book Review Woke Up Lonely By Fiona Maazel NPR

Woke Up Lonely is about a cult leader, his ex-wife, and the four government employees he takes hostage. Last Last Chance tells the story of Lucy Clark, a drug addict with a complicated family and a difficult life. Joshua Henkin of The New York Times said of the book: "'Last Last Chance”' isn’t your average novel, thanks in no small part to Maazel's funny, lacerating prose."
