Weird But Normal: Essays

We rated this book:


Those of us seeking to escape through laughter have a gift in this wonderful book. The author has written this book to make herself and the reader laugh at life’s follies. The joke is often at her expense, but the incidents are very relatable. The author muses about what it feels to be normal. What is normal about her musing is that we all muse about the same thing. Unusual in this bi-coastal literary world, the author lives and writes in the Midwest. While recognizing that most people choose to “fly over” these states, she wittily shares the best reasons why she lives there. She manages to be both laudatory and sarcastic. Also, the author shares what it is to be bi-racial in an ignorant and blunt world and gives the rules for inquiring about race. Quick answer: don’t. She also gives her attention to what it means to be a woman, given that the rituals of womanhood are patently absurd.

For the mostly female readers who are seeking a laugh-out-loud book from a talented writer, look no further. Weird But Normal will give you an enjoyable time escaping into a world of wit.
