7/28/13: Best Humorist, Baltimore Magazine "Best of Baltimore" 2013: "Don't expect knee-slapping guffaws or giggle fits from Winik. In her books—especially the new one, Highs in the Low Fifties—she threads sly humor through poignant observations that generate reflection rather than mere escapism. Winik recounts misadventures, admits shortcomings, confronts demons, and stares down mortality with disarming candor. To her credit, that sincerity never drifts into sentimentality. Instead, it resonates with hard-earned wisdom that, like Winik's humor, connects on a variety of levels."
