Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake – Anna Quindlen (2012)

❤️❤️❤️

Anna Quindlen is a Pulitzer Prize Winning author, New York Times Bestseller, and has been a journalist, novelist and essayist. This memoir is a collection of essays of Quindlen’s thoughts on family, love, aging, religion, death, mothering, and feminism. Sometimes sad, sometimes funny, Quindlen succeeds in tying her separate narratives into one cohesive theme. Her remembrances and thoughts are profound and touching, her tone is relatable, her life recognizable. Lots of Candles reminded me strongly of Nora Ephron’s I Feel Bad About My Neck. Occasionally suffering from meandering thoughts, overall Quindlen has written an enjoyable read. 182 pages
