Have you read Fear of Flying? Pretty crass at times, but very raw and very relatable. Erica Jong has a way of expressing feelings and ideas that I have thought before but couldn't particularly put into words.. I love how she rips into double standards. I'm sure lots of women can relate to being stretched in so many directions at once - having opposing desires and wanting to reconcile two personalities into one person (does that make sense?!) If you haven't read it, I think you'd like it. I'm sure you can get a cheap paperback for $6.99.
You're welcome! I love that series! She has a little bit of your sass - in the best and most charming way. I think I was unemployed when I read it too, and it scared the bejeezus out of me - she was out almost two years, if I remember correctly. How's NC?
