• Bridge Ladies

    Bridge Ladies When I set out to learn about my mother's bridge club, the Jewish octogenarians behind the matching outfits and accessories, I never expected to fall in love with them. This is the story of the ladies, their game, their gen, and the ragged path that led me back to my mother.

Get What I Want I Know How

Thrilled to share that Starry Messenger hit the New York Times bestseller list today at #3. Being a Jewish mother, I’m wondering why not #2 or #1. I can’t stop pushing. Nothing is ever enough. Is there extra credit? Will I ever be good enough? Thin enough? Smart enough? Rich enough? Rough enough? I celebrated with two pieces of pizza and a DIet Pepsi. Start spreading the news: I KNOW HOW TO LIVE. I might vacuum a little later. Or if I’m really living large, Q-TIp.

After any success (like getting the grass cut, painting the foundation of the house, or doing everything I need to do in town in one trip) I wish for a shower, clean sheets, and a nap and I end up deciding what’s for supper and then cooking it, eating it, and cleaning up after it.

  5. Congratulations to you, your author on that! Wow. It’s not easy these days to get there.

    I don’t do much. I like reveling in it, internally. I like waking up and remembering it happened. All good enough for me. Your pizza and Diet Coke – well except the Diet Coke – sounds just about right for me, too.

  6. Haagen Das, preferably chocolate. Call friends.
