This was hilarious--I found myself laughing out loud a bunch of times, which I don't do that often while I read. Elna Baker's memoir is about her faith (she is Mormon, as you might have gleaned from the title) and living in New York City. It's also about her relationship with her body, which I was pleasantly surprised about. She wrote about all the different layers of her life, with lots of humor and empathy, and compassion. It also teaches the reader a lot about the mainstream Mormon faith, not the Fundamentalist one that many people automatically think about when they think Mormonism. She can get a little preachy at times, but not so much that I was put off. It was mostly just a really funny account of a Mormon in NYC.
