In Praise of Messy Lives
In Praise of Messy Lives
Roiphe, Katie

As steely eyed in examining her own life as she is in skewering our cultural pitfalls, Roiphe gives us autobiographical pieces that are by turns, deeply moving, self-critical, razor-sharp, entertaining and unapologetic in their defence of 'messy lives'.

In Praise of Messy Lives is a powerfully unified, vital work from one of our most astute and essayists writing today.

Some shelf wear and foxing.
