Five Things

The Book: American Housewife: Stories by Helen Ellis

Helen Ellis and her collection of short stories of American housewives is refreshing and razor-sharp.  Don't be fooled by the sweet faces.  The women lurking here aren't timid.  They feel everything from disenchantment to anger to hysteria.  The women Helen has created are vivacious and authentic, and I for one would be honored to sit in on their bookclub.

*I'm certain most readers have been there.  You're reading and suddenly the movie version of the story begins to play in your head.  Please tell me I'm not alone in this.  My Five Things series is an ode to that.  Each week, I choose a book and select five items I could easily see being in the movie version.  Enjoy!

  1. I like you "fives"..LOL I just finished the audio version of American Housewife and was a little disappointed. I haven't written a review yet. I didn't hate it but, just okay.
