I wouldn't say that this book could be described as "an inspiration to women everywhere." It is, however, a most interesting read and it could well be made into a movie. The book is dedicated to author's mother who was indeed a very special kind of a woman and led a life full of weird twists and turns that strongly affected her two young sons.
