by Sandra Tsing Loh - £9.99 WW Norton & Co (2015)
paperback ISBN 13: 9780393351095 | ISBN 10: 0393351092
In a voice that is wry, disarming and totally candid, the "imaginatively twisted and fearless" (Los Angeles Times) Sandra Tsing Loh tells the moving and laugh-out-loud tale of her roller coaster ride through "the change". Loh chronicles relatable, everyday perils: raising daughters, weathering hormonal changes, and the ups and downs of a career and a relationship. She writes about an affair and the explosion of her marriage, and keeping her daughters off Facebook while managing the legal and marital hijinks of her eighty- nine-year-old father.
In The Madwoman in the Volvo Loh speaks hilariously and honestly, recounting her journey through a tumultuous time of life, trying to maintain appearances during an epic hormonal—physical, emotional, mental and spiritual—change. The upbeat conclusion: it does get better.
