This is a must for any fan of Ms. Higgins Clark. She overcame so much in her life and yet always held her head up high to show the true lady that she is. Don't expect any revelations or skeletons from her closet, but a touching autobiography of her life.

I have been a fan of Mary Higgins Clark since junior high school when I first read, "A Cry in the Night". As a 31-year old working mother of two, I barely have time to read anything leisurely anymore! Over the years I have read many of her books, but I have found this one the most entertaining to date. This book brought me to tears on more than one occasion. This is a truly inspiring human story of love and loss that many people will relate to. I applaud her determination in making all of her dreams come true. I have forwarded the book to a dear aunt who writes short stories to give her some encouragement. I hope this review has been helpful.

The Memoir, especially as written by a fellow writer, has become
my genre of choice lately.
"Kitchen Privileges" came highly recommended and I enjoyed the
reading. I am not a big reader of Mary Higgins Clark: I have only tried out three or four of her page turners. Nonetheless, discovering her life through this memoir was quite fascinating.
Tidbits that surprised me (and at the same time, brought me to
say "Oh, ofcourse!) include the many tragedies that make up her
life. Even as I call them "tragedies" I can almost feel her disagree.
Her spirit seemed to recognize and acknowledge the less-than-idyllic factors which make up the tapestry of her life AND at the same time, she didn't ever allow those to stop her.... she had a life to live, after all, as we all do.
My favorite "fact tidbit" was to read about Mary Higgins Clark's original writing jobs as well as her original writing group. It really reinforces how important it can be for ALL writers to participate in critique and writing groups with other writers.
She has one particular career in writing that made me say "OH!
So thats how she honed the craft of 'page turning writer' compelling the reader to find out more". I don't want to give it away, though..... instead I invite you to experience the book yourself.

I listened to the CD version (unabridged). I am usually not all that fond of autobiographies, but I found this one highly entertaining, with many funny personal stories. It was also honest and real. This is the life story of someone who too often was given lemons, but always chose to make lemonade. I enjoyed every minute. She brings you right into her world. Incidentally, listening to the CD was also wonderful because the author did the recording, so she knew just where to put the emphasis.

The voice of Mary Higgins Clark comes through clearly to her many readers in "Kitchen Privileges." Her story-telling skills are on display as she relates the events through the decades of her life. Populating the story are family and friends, dear to her, and a theme throughout (though understated) is her warm Irish pluck, that courage that enabled her to raise five children when she was left on her own as a young widow. Clark is modest about her highly-honed writing ability; also, she never overplays her unfolding story. Instead she carries the reader along in a highly competent, yet matter-of-fact style---it's like she's
refusing to take the role of heroine. The woman we meet in these pages is modest, immensely likable, and still young in spirit after all these years and all these best sellers. Clark's memoir deserves the highest recommendation.

I've been reading Mary Higgins Clark's well-woven tales of mystery since I was a little girl. I long admired and enjoyed Mrs. Higgins Clark's gift for writing entertaining mysteries with characters that still seemed like "real people". When I saw her memoir available I scooped it up immediately and read it in one afternoon. Several times I laughed out loud and cried tears of sorrow reading about her life from its humble, beautiful beginnings in the Bronx to her struggle as a young widow with five small children. I had no idea that the author had undergone such a road in her life to reach the success and fame she now well deserves. I highly reccomend this book to any Mary Higgins Clark fan, or anyone who would like to read an account of a resourceful, tender on the inside, tough as nails on the outside lady. Bravo!
