Title: You Don’t Sweat Much For A Fat Girl
Author: Celia Rivenbark
Published: August 2011 – St. Martin’s Griffin
My take: If you like snarky and humorous essays with a southern perspective you’ll want to read this collection. It made me laugh – a lot.
From the one about Where will all those Chinese boys find wives when they’re ready to marry? to What if the Cash Cab joins the expected fleet of space taxis taking fares to some planet? – I enjoyed the giggle-fest.
Each essay starts with a kernel of wisdom and explodes into wacky hilarity. Having raised two daughters I loved the final essay: Teen Angel. It’s about raising teens in the texting/facebook era. Funny (and scary and true) stuff.
