Rachel Wagner Very interesting review. I agree. It seems like so many of the women I know are unwilling to take any satisfcation in their accomplishments. Instead of saying "wow, I just cooked this yummy meal" or "I just finished a big project at work" they say "I should have cooked the chicken less" or "I wish I had done more editing on the project...". You get the idea. Why do we do this?
I understand that nobody likes a self-centered individual but that doesn't mean we have to devalue everything we accomplish in life.
Anyway- thanks for the review.

Johanna Yes! Exactly. I trace the whole pseudo self-deprecating thing to Anne Beattie. I don't get why it's so popular.
