I like to laugh and a little TMI (too much information) from a writer doesn't bother me. What surprised me is Notaro's ability to totally shift gears and write an essay like "Ready or Not." Not only is Notaro funny, especially in dialogue with her husband, she can also deftly move from Gladys...

Really very good, this is my first Marian Keyes but I don't think it will be my last. Nicely told with complex characters and a surprising amount of subplot that all comes together in the end, there was laughter and there was tears. A very well crafted tale.
