I love honest memoirs, and PLEASE EXCUSE MY DAUGHTER is so very honest, and so very funny. I enjoyed this book from the first chapter, in which the author talks about how nice it would be to retire to Florida with her grandfather, never mind that she is 30 years old. I can definitely relate. The 30's are hard for anyone, especially if you're a woman who wants to make something of yourself, and, as in this author's case, you haven't yet done so. Julie Klam's journey to make something of herself is funny, heartbreaking and insightful, especially in an age where many smart and educated women, for some strange reason, still seem to want to rely on their husbands to make the money, have the career, and provide the intellectual stimulation in the relationship. Julie Klam's very-worth-reading memoir transcends her own life and should be read as an inspirational tale for all women who, whether married or single or mothers or not, still want to make it on their own.
