Ha! That tops the misguided LATimes article, doesn’t it! Congratulations to Ms. Egan.
Linda and Darrelyn, thanks for celebrating!
Wow, great—you saw that one coming. Another book to add to the reading list. I have read several you’ve mentioned and really enjoyed them. I had heard of her book but forgotten it until you flagged her first award.
Highly recommend this one, Richard.
I was so glad you brought the LA Times article to my attention. I read it while on vacation a few weeks ago and I loved it. So interesting, hilarious, awesome.
