In her introduction, Patchett explains that this essay collection “bears the stamp of a writer who got her start in women’s magazines: It is full of example and advice.” Blending astute observation with humor, Patchett’s performance is skilled; her sometimes droll and always friendly sounding voice is the perfect medium for her message. Here, Patchett shares her views on marriage but also on writing, friendship, opening a bookstore, and the joys and sorrows of dog ownership—all challenging but fulfilling endeavors. There’s something so down to earth, so unsentimental about her approach that listeners will feel as though they are sitting and reflecting on life’s for-better-or-for worse moments with a particularly perceptive and entertaining friend.
