PRAISE FOR IRIS HAS FREE TIME
“Iris Smyles has created in “Iris Smyles” an irresistible anti-heroine whose innocent iconoclasm startles and captivates.” — Frederic Tuten
“Iris Has Free Time is a hilarious, lyrical, and wise book about youth—its beauty, its folly, and
the belief it will go on forever even as it’s slipping away. You will love this
book.” – Diane Keaton
“Iris Smyles has reinvented Sally Bowles and Holly Golightly for the 21st century—with this difference: she inhabits rather than observes her appealing character.” – Edmund White
“Smyles, the author not the character, depicts a particular moment in time—that awkward place between being a kid and being an adult—and the results are often hilarious, often tinged with sadness, but always authentic.” – Booklist
