Publisher Description

Blazingly intelligent, wickedly funny, and piercingly honest, a memoir that captures the perils and pleasures of girlhood, womanhood, and life itself.

“One of my favorite books of the last few years.” —Cheryl Strayed

“Sentence for sentence, a more pleasure-yielding midlife memoir is hard to think of.” —The Atlantic

At mid-life, Claire Dederer developed a sudden yearning for jailbreak. In this exuberant memoir, she reflects on two periods in her life uncannily similar in their emotional intensity: her present experience as a middle-aged mom in the grip of unruly and mysterious new hungers, and her recollections of herself as a teenager.

Another Island Girl ,

Powerful book!

Claire reveals the confusing narrative that many women share yet are afraid to talk about, out of fear of condemnation. Instead, it lingers and festers and brings periods of self-loathing and is probably the source of many of the illnesses that are epidemic among women today. Thank you, Claire, for being vulnerable and giving us a voice! I have to believe that our girls are benefitting from our history.
