"These essays on a woman's wild ride through life give us Marion's bracing tonic-of-truth voice in splendid form-her voice that is always brilliantly funny, intelligent, brave, haunting, and full of surprises, revelations, and wise, wild connections. At this point, I don't think I could live without it. If you don't know her yet, your life is about to get better." -Naomi Shihab Nye

Whether she is writing about the vagaries of family vacations on land and sea, about getting her tubes tied and the importance of a woman's right to choose, or her battles with her rebel pyromaniac teenage son, Marion Winik is searingly honest and unfailingly witty in the face of adversity. In this collection of essays, a treat for dedicated fans and new readers alike, Winik explores domesticity, midlife, and aging.

A brand new final section brings Above Us Only Sky-originally published in 2005-up to date with essays from her award-winning column in the Baltimore Fishbowl, taking us through experiences with blended families, adult children, and empty nest.
