We are gearing up for an “Autumn chill in the air” which will bring us a blustery week. Maybe even some snow showers by the end of the week!!! Here we go New Yorkers…..I think this calls for some comic relief!!! This weeks’ book choice is Hungry Heart: Adventures in Life, Love and Writing by Jennifer Weiner. Jennifer also wrote the story, In Her Shoes, which was made into the movie with Cameron Diaz!!! The book description goes like this:
Jennifer Weiner is many things: a bestselling author, a Twitter phenomenon, and an “unlikely feminist enforcer” (The New Yorker).
She’s also a mom, a daughter and a sister, a former rower and current
clumsy yogini, a wife, a friend, and a reality-TV devotee. In her first
essay collection, she takes the raw stuff of her life and spins it into a
collection of tales of modern-day womanhood as uproariously funny and
moving as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey. Born in Louisiana,
raised in Connecticut, educated at Princeton, Jennifer spent years
feeling like an outsider (“a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie &
Fitch world”) before finding her people in newsrooms, and her voice as a
novelist, activist, and New York Times columnist.
subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest stories: sex, weight,
envy, money, her mother’s coming out of the closet, her estranged
father’s death. From lonely adolescence to modern childbirth to hearing
her six-year-old daughter say the f-word—fat—for the first time, Jen
dives deep into the heart of female experience, with the wit and candor
that have endeared her to readers all over the world.
Hilarious and moving, Hungry Heart
is about yearning and fulfillment, loss and love, and a woman who
searched for her place in the world, and found it as a storyteller.
