Musings of a Book Addict

I'm married to a scavenger of sorts and he often totes home rescued boxes of books that I paw through with shiny, hungry eyes. I pull out the odd and interesting and add them to my teetering stack.

Roseanne: My Life As a Woman

Roseanne: My Life As a Woman - Roseanne Barr Phew! This was a wild ride. What a fascinating human being. I had no idea she grew up Jewish in the sea of Mormons known as Salt Lake City. Roseanne's writing style is all over the place, to say the least, but once you can get past that, this is quite a mystical, spiritual and feminist book. She goes from describing in great detail what it was like to be a fat, Jewish kid in Utah and then all of a sudden she is spouting poetry about levitating and becoming one with the cosmos. I can roll with that kind of crazy flow, so I really enjoyed this!
