She Said / She Said:
From the author of the viral Modern Love column, “You May Want to Marry My Husband.”
In Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life , Amy Krouse Rosenthal has ingeniously adapted the centuries-old format of the encyclopedia to convey the accumulated knowledge of her lifetime in a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir. Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere–preferably at the beginning–and see how one young woman’s alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways.
