it was ok
Recommended for: Hmmm. Not sure.

I started reading this book thinking it was a sure fire "fall back." That is, that I was going to love it, it would be easy reading, and I would be through it in a flash. And, I'm honestly surprised that I found it really banal, uninteresting and totally without bite. I wanted light and funny, and who would've thunk it, this is simply TOO light, not very witty, and and pretty much without substance (those who know me, are saying, WHAT????). These essays skim so many topics so much at the surface that I wan't drawn in or interested - really. I revere Wendy's memory, but I can't recommend this. Go see one of her plays for sure, but don't contemplate this book as a measure of her talent.
