A memoir revealing all the madness and beauty that goes into a woman's life. Not generalizing, not preachy, very funny, at times sarcastic, this well drawn up account on womanhood including all the sticky bits, is a must-read. The book offers fun, laughter, tears, clever suggestions and some great company; almost like an afternoon spent over many cups of chai with a good friend.
Every woman will connect with it, I found myself nodding away, saying "OMG! Me too....I know!.....Yes....I couldn't have said it better". Juggling the roles of a daughter, mother, friend, and all the other layers in between and adopting the 'I am enough' and 'I love me' philosophy, the author helps us view the little things that can simplify this complicated world we live in.
All you men and women out there, go grab a copy! Men - throw prejudices in the trashcan before reading this one. Women - put on the kettle before you crack open this one!
I lived this book as it its raw to the point of discomfort at times yet it speaks out all that you felt and thought it was only you but find solace that it's an existential thing .....I loved the way the author sees her life through.....Food ,Spaces and Friends .....
The line I loved the most was
Call your father...he is the bloke no one calls
As it's entirely true in my case.
I have been gifting this book to every girl I know. Whatever the age - A girl at heart. You have to read this one
