It's My Body and I'll Cry If I Want To
Bold Books, Sep 2001, 14.99, 232 pp.
Middle aged writer Beth Middleton wonders how her life fell into some sort of disastrous free fall. Her husband has left her after years of marriage, leaving her in financial trouble and raising their troubled angry fourteen-year-old mostly by herself. She hates her work, which barely pays the recurring bills and insures she ignores any self-indulgent pampering that she might fantasize.
