Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake
We’re huge fans of Anna Quindlen and couldn’t pass up the opportunity to use her genius book title in a blog post. We love that she celebrates the concept of lots of candles, when practically all of America runs from it. So what’s the book about? It’s a memoir with the Pulitzer Prize winning author writing about looking back and ahead—and celebrating it all—as she considers marriage, girlfriends, our mothers, faith, loss, all the stuff in our closets, and more. Using her past, present, and future to explore what matters most to women at different ages, Quindlen serves up generous portions of her wise, commonsensical take on life.
