I always enjoy Berg's novels, but I wasn't sure how her collection of short stories, The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted, would be. As always, Berg delivers sharp and funny prose. Berg asks what would the different characters in each story do if they could have the courage to change something in their lives. There is a delightful slice of life in each and every story. The characters are like a more interesting, pithy ( but real ) version of people we know, or want to know.This CD version, read by Elizabeth Berg, had me smiling, laughing, and nodding with recognition as I traveled in my car. Any woman over a "certain age" will see her friends, family, or herself in some of these stories. Very fun listen!!!
