Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake: A Memoir by Anna Quindlen




Anna Quindlen is an accomplished novelist.  So I had quite high expectations for this 'memoir'.  And they were exceeded.  I have previously posted about Still Life with Breadcrumbs

Rather than a life story this book is a series of small essays (or I suspect previous columns) dealing with issues she has thought about including the progress of women, aging, parenting and the stuff you collect over a lifetime.

I didn't agree with her on everything but she expresses her world view in an accessible and compelling way.
