Real Life: comdey and drama

joyIn Hungry Heart, author Jennifer Weiner (Good in Bed) “takes the raw stuff of her life and spins it into a collection of tales …as uproariously funny as the best of Nora Ephron and Tina Fey.” Born in Louisiana but educated at Princeton, Weiner spent years feeling like “a Lane Bryant outtake in an Abercrombie & Fitch world” before finding her people in newsrooms and her voice as a novelist.  “No subject is off-limits in these intimate and honest stories.” In The Future Tense of Joy, author Jessica Teich finds in the obituary of a brilliant Oxford student a “ghostly echo” of her own struggles.  This is a “luminous account of one woman’s efforts to free herself, and her family, from the demons of the past.”
