Eleanor knows she's a mess. But today, she will tackle the little things. She will shower and get dressed. She will have her poetry and yoga lessons after dropping off her son, Timby. She won't swear. She will initiate sex with her husband, Joe. But before she can put her modest plan into action--life happens. Today, it turns out, is the day Timby has decided to fake sick to weasel his way into his mother's company. It's also the day Joe has chosen to tell his office--but not Eleanor--that he's on vacation. Just when it seems like things can't go more awry, an encounter with a former colleague produces a graphic memoir whose dramatic tale threatens to reveal a buried family secret. A hilarious, heart-filled story about reinvention, sisterhood, and how sometimes it takes facing up to our former selves to truly begin living.

Meh submitted by sdunav on June 17, 2017, 10:55am Interesting insights into modern life and motherhood, but the story was so scattered I couldn't get into the story of this neurotic woman in Seattle.

quirky, funny, reader is good on audiobook submitted by 21621031390949 on June 27, 2020, 12:54pm I love quirky little books, and that's an apt description of this one. I thoroughly enjoyed listening to the excellent reading of the audio book.
