I’m sorry, all, but I’m still not finished How to Be a Woman.
I got (deservedly) distracted by Julian Barnes’ The Sense of an Ending. So good. If you’re looking for a slightly philosophical read that approaches the questions of memory and personal narrative and the stories we tell ourselves about our own lives in a totally approachable and wryly humorous (of the dry, British Public School variety) sort of way, definitely have Amazon deliver that one to your doorstep.
I was also (not-so-deservedly) distracted by summer season finales.
In the meantime, I have made a little progress with Moran’s also delightfully British and refreshingly candid memoir/feminist treatise.
“Being polite is possibly the greatest daily contribution everyone can make to life on earth.” (82)
“I particularly love autobiographies: I can eat a whole person by sundown.” (68)
“I now believe that… [every] grown modern woman should have: a pair of yellow shoes (they unexpectedly go with everything).” (44-45)
