It's time for Book Club with Heather!
This week I'm reviewing:
This is the story of how a haughty former sorority girl went from having a household income of almost a quarter-million dollars to being evicted from a ghetto apartment... It's a modern Greek tragedy, as defined by Roger Dunkle in The Classical Origins of Western Culture: a story in which "the central character, called a tragic protagonist or hero, suffers some serious misfortune which is not accidental and therefore meaningless, but is significant in that the misfortune is logically connected."
In other words? The bitch had it coming.
This book was really great and I think part of it is because it was all true, more or less. I believe Lancaster made small changes to the facts but it's all based on her life. Truly hilarious. But also a bit scary how things transpired. Really makes you think about what you have in your life.
I may or may not also have seen a bit of me in Jen and her relationship with her boyfriend-then-husband. Overly-dramatic, competitive to a fault, know-it-all (at work & outside of) with a great guy who somehow tolerates it all...or brushes it off, whatever the case may be.
I can't wait to read some of her books, hopefully they're just as great!
