Both party and elegy, Drink to the Lasses is the story of Mary Beth Ellis’ life at Saint Mary’s College, the all-women’s sister school of the somewhat-more-famous University of Notre Dame. The same wit that made her a popular campus columnist is now shaded with a steely view of her younger self. Ellis battles her roommate, struggles with obsessive compulsive disorder, and discovers that her chosen career might not be so choice after all. In vignettes and set pieces, she introduces us to issues of a modern women’s college and peels back the gold leaf from social life at “Catholic Disneyland.” The first of its kind, this poignant, hilarious literary memoir is a must-read for all once and future freshmen.
