Getting Married and Other Mistakes

by Barbara Slate, 154 pages

The author recounts her capitulation to parental and cultural pressures to get married, coming to terms with her past mistakes, and learning to listen to her own internal voice.

I wish the simple, Paintbrush-like art didn't rely quite so much on recycled panels, but it still helps relate the author's positive, snarky story of self-acceptance.  Her conversations with her Barbie lamp crack me up and the idea of a "sad brides" photo exhibition sounds fascinating.  "Listen to and be yourself" is good advice for anyone.
