I recommend this book to all my friends of a certain age. Ten years ago, probably wouldn't have identified with so much of it so closely. There are portions that are familiar to any woman of any age. She goes off on handbags and I hurt my neck by nodding in agreement so vigorously. I mean, really, when these women make the statement "THIS is the best handbag ever," seriously, what makes it the BEST ever and what qualifications do they have to make the pronouncements. I have never found a handbag that I ever liked, let alone vowed to spend the rest of my life with. But I digress. Lots of thought-provoking tales and lots of fun.
