Falling Into Manholes: The Memoir of a Bad/Good Girl by Wendy Merrill
I received an ARC of this title (which was released only a couple of days ago) a memoir written by the brutally honest, and at times brutally funny Merrill.
Though memoirs of all shapes and sizes are crowding the market at the moment, Merrill has tried to capture the raw, honest, train-wreck-like, horrifying time line of her dating past. She writes candidly about her problems with alcohol, bulimia and co-dependence, and writes about some of the more colorful skeletons in her dating closet. You just want to yell at Wendy, "No! Don't! Kick this loser to the curb!" knowing she isn't really going to listen, so you read on...
This is an engaging memoir, geared more towards the female set, particularly those in their 30s and 40s who enjoy reading of the foibles of others.
