The Girl Who Chased the Moon: A Novel by Sarah Addison Allen
The Girl Who Chased the Moon: A Novel

ReaderWoman California, January 1, 2011

The mystery and magic that Allen brings to her books is charmingly present in The Girl Who Chased the Moon. Allen's sense of the whimsical and the fantastic has woven a story of a young girl in a new town, out of sync with her past life, and a young man trying to escape his family's past. Like Southern fireflies, the flickers and glimmers of light within this novel's pages will delight you, and make you a Sarah Addison Allen fan... if you aren't already!

Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny by Marlo Thomas
Growing Up Laughing: My Story and the Story of Funny

ReaderWoman California, October 8, 2010

A great book that is a memoir/journal of American humor and comics (then and now!)Thomas' book gives us the chance to feel touched, reminiscent, entertained, enlightened, charmed and very involved with the narrative itself. At 72 (her 73rd birthday is in November), she remains the vibrant, peppy girl we remember from That Girl - and yet her personal growth and feminism was and is a beacon to baby boomer women who watched her life avidly for strength and encouragement.

"I was a lucky kid," Marlo writes, "to have a seat at the table...with those comic warriors who had the audacity to stand up in a room full of strangers with the conviction that they could bring them all together in laughter. Those stories of those times have been humming in my head all of my life, and I decided at last to write them down." I am so glad she did!
