Some books you finish, close the back cover and think 'thank god I finished it'; others you read and think ' that was interesting/thought provoking/fascinating...'. When I finished this book, I was sad that it was finished...I wanted more.

Markoe writes several essays about her mother and their relationship in this book. Her mother was difficult to put it mildly. So much so that after I chuckled about Markoe's description of her, I was sad for the little girl who suffered such a mother. This book is very honest and real. It is not over-analytical, but does talk about the motivation for some people's words and behaviors.

I own every book Merrill Markoe has ever written and am not ashamed to admit I could easily become her stalker. I used to read her books on the subway but had to stop because I ended up laughing so loudly and uncontrollably that my fellow riders were forced to move to another car (or forced me to move to another car). This book is not like that but somehow even more satisfying. It is very funny, of course, but the subjects are deeper and her honesty is amazing. Just a special book from the funniest writer ever.

I was skeptical. This was my first Nook purchase. What great writing and an engaging group of essays. I'd give five stars but those offended by suggestive language would not enjoy. You're loss!
