Bring your baggage and don't pack light : essays / Helen Ellis.

Ellis, Helen, (author.).

Summary

Summary:

In gloriously comic and moving essays, Ellis shares thoughts on friendship among grown women. She dishes on married middle-age sex, sobs with a theater full of women as a psychic exorcises their sorrows, gets twenty shots of stomach bile to the neck to get rid of her double chin, and gathers up the courage to ask, "Are you there, Menopause? It's Me, Helen." -- adapted from jacket
