      I'd be a book club's worst nightmare. University (where I had to read hundreds of books in German and analyse them line by line) turned me into a book-phobic. For decades afetrwards I couldn't touch a book, as I could no longer enjoy reading for pleasure. I'd read trashy women's magazines or newspapers, but just couldn't touch a book. The book pulls no punches in its nightmarish depictions of violence, an essential part of its plot. In its early chapters, the book’s mordant humor, female sheriff, and quirky minor characters echo the movie Fargo, but Galligan raises the stakes beyond the comic. And indomitable Heidi, fiercely smart Pepper, and Angus, goodhearted despite his.

      The New York Review of Books posts a vintage essay by Joan Didion on the films of Woody Allen: “This notion of oneself as a kind of continuing career—something to work at, work on, ‘make an effort’ for and subject to an hour a day of emotional Nautilus training, all in the interests not of attaining grace but of improving one’s ‘relationships’—is fairly recent in the . The Making Of Clothing and the Perils That Lie Within. Throughout history, parents have failed to properly educate their children about the perils that accompany spinning, sewing, weaving and knitting only to regret it later. History is filled with tragic stories of hardship and discomfort brought about by the practice of these crafts.

      Part fantasy, part cautionary tale about ageism and the perils of opting out, the breezy but sometimes brittle "Younger" is about a newly-divorced 40something housewife and mother in fictional.   The price of sex will not be quite so high in the book's final story, ''Disheveled Nymphs.'' Its central character, Leland Wevill, is a lawyer who has retired to Hawaii and lives alone surrounded.

The last half reads like the Perils of Penelope. Claire is probably the most bizarrely incurious narrator I've ever encountered (who wasn't deliberately written as such), which is all the more wasteful given that the premise provides so very much to be noticed and investigated.

but I found the book lacking. It reads like housewife wish. Obedience is as basic an element in the structure of social life as one can point to.
