Book Summary: Broken Pieces is an award winning book about relationships, a study of women, and a book with heart. Vastly different in tone from her previous essay collections A Walk In The Snark and The Mancode: Exposed, Broken Pieces is a collection of pieces inspired by life: love, loss, abuse, trust, grief, and ultimately, love again. While still non-fiction, best-selling Broken Pieces is not humor at all. In Thompson's most intensive work to date, she opens her soul and invites the reader in for a visit. Thompson goes into those long buried rooms we lock up deep inside and shares a bit of her soul. Broken Pieces is vulnerable, raw honesty, and no-holds barred.

PRAISE FOR BROKEN PIECES:
"This is a book about rising above; about becoming more than you can possibly believe you ever will be at those terribly low points of your life. It is about surviving, thriving and living and I recommend it more than any other book I have read." ~Tracy Riva, Midwest Book Review, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer
"The book is written as a series of fragmentary essays. Thompson is a wonderful stylist, and the whole book is written in a very lyrical and poignant prose. This is not a book for leisure reading, but a powerful testament to the resilience and the indomitable nature of human spirit." ~Dr. Bojan Tunguz, Amazon Hall of Fame reviewer
"So ridiculously amazing, I can't take it" ~Gabe Berman, author "Live Like A Fruit Fly"
"Engrossed. It is a grippingly brilliant work" ~Frank Feather, author and blogger
"Any woman who has had a former lover (or two or three) will be able to relate to this. Her writing is very poetic" ~LS Hullinger, reader, writer
"A brilliant and intense must read" ~Jeffery Rowan, reader
