it was amazing

Honestly. I just want to read something I can enjoy. Something I understand. Something about someone honest and forthcoming and funny and true.
Something comfortable and lovely without being saccharine or trite.
This book made me happy and I was sad when I finished it and couldn't read it anymore.
If a woman can handle 5 marriages (several to near-sociopaths), a Tijuana abortion, breast cancer, and Bea Arthur and still manage to be funny and endearing and fascinating, well, then, hell, the rest of us can deal with our problems.
This book is like mashed potatoes and macaroni and cheese. Literary comfort food.
I wish Eddi-Rue were around. I'd write her a letter and tell her how much I enjoyed this book.
