As each chapter echoes a bedtime rumination, Goodnight and God Bless is about books, writers, mice, mothers, airport hotels, and other such unexpectedly thought-provoking subjects. Snugly interwoven with a warmly personal and anecdotal history of the author, this wise and witty book offers an ironic take on nearly everything.

Drawing from her experiences as a woman, mother, daughter, wife and writer, Anita Nair marks over a decade of her literary career with deliciously amusing quotes, mostly unnecessary and unabashed trivia, footnotes and other erudite diversions. This is the perfect book to keep by your bedside, to dip and delve into anytime.
