Our Heroine, Holly, is really struggling with turning 50. Her only child is about to graduate from high school and go off thousands of miles away to college. She suspects that her husband is having an affair, and her elderly mother is having major medical issues clear across the country. Not to mention her hot flashes and thinning hair do NOT make up for the fact that she no longer needs a diaphragm. And worst of all her boobs are sagging to an all new low. Holly is really having a hard time coming to grip with life after 50. Will she really have to start her life completely over at 50 or can she pull herself and her life together to enjoy everything that she has to be thankful for?
Ladies - seriously - you are going to LOVE this book. The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus is written in a unique poetry style. I had an e-book copy of the ARC so the style might be skewed a little, but it appears as if each page is it's own unique poem. Read individually they have an interesting message, but read collectively they tell a hilarious, yet poignant story of a woman who is not aging as gracefully as she had hoped. Think Shopaholic meets Nora Ephron. Absolutely perfect. You and your friends will laugh with Holly, you will cry with Holly, and you will be glad to know you are not the only one fighting gravity with everything you've got. The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus is on sale today - I can not wait to hear what you think!
