The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted

The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted: And Other Small Acts of Liberation

by Elizabeth Berg

Kim Sisto Robinson: Elizabeth Berg has risen. She has returned with that rich voice that grinds a heart directly into the ground; that voice that understands women so beautifully and profoundly and wholly that she becomes our girlfriend. Ms. Berg, I've been waiting for you to return to me, and with "Small Acts of Liberation" YOU HAVE! You really have.

This book is a series of thirteen essays, each one more delicious than the next; all of them superbly constructed: Returns and Exchanges, The Party, Rain, Double Diet, Truth or Dare, Sin City. All of the stories will dig inside the reader's being like an old friend, a memory, or a sweet pleasure, which they've lost and found once again. Berg inserts food in each essay as its own character. And of course, Berg's insight and humor are continually present and delightful.

Elizabeth Berg's writing is like an ice-cream sundae that one desires to savor upon her tongue without ceasing...and her newest gem is a Lollapalooza. Thank you, Ms. Berg for bringing your rich voice back. I've been waiting for a long time. I still taste the chocolate upon my lips. Highly recommmended for Berg lovers :)
