OMG I used to give this to women to read. It so resonated with me.

I need to reread this, I wonder if I have changed that much or if I will once again have a huge series of AHAs.

Loved it, never forgot the diswasher and the knives.

I read this a long time ago - anyone who knows me will understand why.

How did I miss this when I was young? Too bad about the silly, pink, Erma Bombeckish cover. That alone would have kept me from ever picking it up if book hadn't been recommended. Internal dialogue and stream of consciousness of the protagonist as she moves towards self discovery is a revelation. Lived much of it myself.
