The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: and other small acts of liberation

book cover imageReaders who appreciate Anna Quindlen's way with female characters and their relationships will equally enjoy Elizabeth Berg, who depicts women with compassion and eloquence, in "The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: and other small acts of liberation". Though her novels are excellent choices, this compelling anthology of short fiction features 11 never-before-published pieces that explore the lives of ordinary, relatable women. The title story, about a woman who ditches her diet and binges with pleasure for a day, is just one of many true-to-life situations that Berg addresses. Bored with your routine? These stories "highlight the bright sparks in everyday experience," says Kirkus Reviews.
