Ruminations of a Catholic School Girl is a compendium of random thoughts on food, love, sex, shopping, marriage, divorce, death, rebirth, the existential vacuum and music through essays, notes passed in class, and diary entries. With vivid imagery and sardonic commentary, brings to life the story of a Boomer from Long Island, Gwen Patrick (the author's alter-ego), who loves shoes, Beaujolais, shopping, food and most of all - food, family and friends. Chronicling her life from her first experience with parochial school in the 60s through her son Zimmerman's high school years, it tells the story of a Long Island boomers experience and continuing journey.With references to Plutarch and Popeye, the Bible and Sex and the City, Jim Morrison, Joni Mitchell and Opera, Gwen's journey will resonate with women of any age – and men who understand the importance of having the right mustard for their pastrami.
