With a memoir as entertaining as it is touching, Amy Dickinson (advice columnist of "Ask Amy" and NPR contributor) offers a loosely chronological collection of personal essays. Describing everything from getting divorced to losing a beloved pet, from single-parenting a daughter to being raised by a group of strong women, Dickinson's humorous insights transform these separate stories into a touching journey, full of wisdom. Sharing truths learned from her "ongoing lifelong conversations" with these "queens," Dickinson narrates her story deftly yet matter-of-factly, as though talking over a cup of coffee. Never lingering too long over any moment, whether funny or sad, she just moves steadily on, like life itself. Her voice, with its appealing girl-next-door familiarity, will delight and engage listeners. J.C.G. Winner of AudioFile Earphones Award © AudioFile 2009, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2009]
