4.0 out of 5 stars Fresh, funny, insightful., 7 Aug. 2010
I picked up this book in airport and was thoroughly engrossed during my 12 hour journey. Reminiscent of David Sedaris's touching and hilarious short stories I really enjoyed the structure of the memoir and her stories packed a punch. Her love of words and language shine through and made me happy that I paid attention in English class. But most importantly her stories ring true and there are some passages that are incredibly touching. Rhoda took some traumatic events in her life and with a deft hand transformed them into fantastic read. My only wish is that she had included a recipe for Zwiebach! A fantastic debut.
