Summary
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
Summary
An offbeat memoir is written in the form of an encyclopedia in which the author chronicles her life through a series of alphabetical entries that cover both the trivial and the essential elements of her world as she ponders everything from love and truthto shower tiles
