Booklist Review
Chick lit meets business savvy from Author-Entrepreneur Lynn Isenberg in her funny and poignant novel ‘The Funeral Planner.” Smart, perceptive Maddy Banks is a welcome relief from the shoe-obsessed heroines of other chick-lit novels, and Isenberg’s exploration of the business world is fresh and fascinating.

Funny. Gifted. Intelligent. Lynn Isenberg reminds me of me.





Sandra Bernhard Actress, Comedienne, Singer, Author
I’ve known her since she was a little girl running around in Danskins. She was always entertaining… and she still is.




Jeff Arch Academy Award Winning Writer, Sleepless in Seattle
Lynn Isenberg’s book is total proof that the best part of making it is your own personal story about how you did it!
