Helen Ellis zigs and zags from deeply personal stories (see: the essay on her decision not to have children) to hilariously weird concept pieces (see: “Today Was a Good Day!” in which she counts such daily blessings as, “I didn’t choke on a cupcake for breakfast”). Enjoy wit, introspection, and subversion mixed together in a blend that could only come from Ellis’s mind.— Mary Laura
“I had forgotten how to laugh, but after opening this book and starting to read, I couldn’t help myself—it just came bubbling up. What a wonderful thing it is to hold in your hands something that has the power to make one erupt with hoots and howls. Helen Ellis is a treasure and a gift from the gods; she tells it like it is in Southern lady speak and we love her all the more for the joy she has given us.”
