Summary, etc.:
"The bestselling author of American Housewife and Southern Lady Code returns with a viciously funny collection of literary essays on love, family, and friendship among grown-ass women"-- Provided by publisher.
In gloriously comic and moving essays, Ellis shares thoughts on friendship among grown women. She dishes on married middle-age sex, sobs with a theater full of women as a psychic exorcises their sorrows, gets twenty shots of stomach bile to the neck to get rid of her double chin, and gathers up the courage to ask, "Are you there, Menopause? It's Me, Helen." -- adapted from jacket
