If you are a woman, you must run right out and get this book. Anna Quindlen has long been one of my favorite authors, and in this latest, a memoir, her words resonate louder and more strongly than ever. She is witty, real, honest, and wise. Her words will make you laugh and think. I can't say enough about how wonderful this book is. While I was lucky enough to find it at the library, I realize now that it's one I'd like to own- to revisit at different ages and stages of my life.
As I approach my 44th birthday (less than a week to go!), I leave you with one of my many favorite passages from this novel. Ms. Quindlen writes, "I've finally recognized my body for what it is: a personality-delivery system, designed expressly to carry my character from place to place, now and in the years to come. It's like a car, and while I like a red convertible or even a Bentley as well as the next person, what I really need are four tires and an engine."
