Do you collect anything? Receipts, lint, crumbs, dust, gum wrappers (so many gum wrappers! I don't even chew gum), paper clips, earring backs. Ya'll, purses are dumb.

If you could be any fictional character, who would you choose? Mr Tiger

But Jenn! This is an older title!

It is. It is. But! It's a new cover, so I'm doing this.

And it's the book I wish I'd had 20 years ago.

And it's the book I gave to my teenage step-daughter as she warred the tumult of high school.

And it's the book I recommended to my mother when she was JUST. SO. SICK. OF. IT. ALL.

Moran tackles the day-to-day struggles and joys of being woman with strident, subversive laughter. And I love her guts for it.
