What I’ve been reading…….

If you have ever had the opportunity to hear Gina Barreca in person then you know how laugh-out-loud funny she is.  Well her new book It’s Not That I’m Bitter…: Or How I Learned to Stop Worrying About Visible Panty Lines and Conquered the World does not disappoint.  I was sitting on my deck one recent summer evening reading this, laughing out loud, and hoping none of the neighbors were outside listening.  Fans of Nora Ephron’s I Feel Bad About My Neck: And Other Thoughts on Being a Woman (which I thoroughly enjoyed also) will find humor along with serious insights about women and aging.   Barreca packs a hilarious punch while gleefully rejecting emotional torture, embracing limitless laughter, and showing women how they can conquer the world with good friends (“It’s not that diamonds are a girl’s best friend, but a girl’s best friends are diamonds”), sharp wit, and great shoes.
