liked it

I read the endorsements, and the first person said it was hard not to laugh out loud when reading these. Then the first story was about rape. I decided to ignore the endorsement.

I read the book as a collection of shorts, but I didn't read them with the understanding that they were linked (maybe I should have?). It was a quick read. Enjoyable. Some parts were humorous, though she discussed serious issues. Her style reminds me of Anne Lamott.
