Overview

When Crazy's Coming: The Midlife Misadventures of a Midlife Diva by t l thomas

Sixty days...one long summer

Mikki Robbinson has a problem... at least that's what everyone tells her. In the fall her only child leaves for college, leaving Mikki with a life of her own - and no clue what to do with it. Sixty days, her best friend Sonni challenges. Sixty days to find Mr. Right Now. What's the worst that could happen?

Crazy's Coming...

When Sonni issues the challenge, "Sixty Days to Find Mr. Right Now", Mikki accepts; after all, the likelihood of finding Mr. Right in a sea of online candidates was unlikely.

Until she met Baby.

I heard about "When Crazy's Coming" on Goodreads, and I must confess I was curious to read it because… A) it sounded like funny chick-lit and a real, serious adventure in growth, both at the same time – a good combination… and B) the main character's name is the same as mine, although spelled a little differently, which piqued my interest. I was FAR from disappointed! Mikki is the narrator, and she has a genuine, down-to-earth, witty voice all her own. In some ways she's worldly wise, a successful career woman who's spent the last 18 years as a single parent raising a son. In other ways, though, she's an innocent – she hasn't paid much attention to her emotional side, and her disastrous relationship with her son's father has left her afraid to move beyond it. She's convinced herself that she doesn't need to move beyond it. This sounds like serious stuff, and it is. But this is a funny book. I had to laugh out loud on almost every page. Mikki didn't so much tell the story as show it to me as it happened, and her private thoughts and reflections on the events are often hilarious, partly because she can laugh at herself. The thing I really, really like about this book is how visual it is. The author puts us in Mikki's mind, behind her eyes, and we see the things she sees – often absurd, like her mother "wrestling" with a crab leg at Red Lobster. We also see the things she imagines, like a blob of gravy on a fat man's too-tight polo shirt turning into a tiny Mickey Mouse hanging ten on a surfboard, riding a big blue wave. I would LOVE to see all this, real scenes and imagined ones, as a movie. It would be sidesplitting. The book starts a little slowly, with Mikki introducing herself and other characters instead of moving the story quickly forward, and you might get impatient. But hang in there. If you like chick-lit, if you like to see a character gradually get to know herself better, and if you like to laugh, I highly recommend "When Crazy's Coming."
