In Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake, New York Times bestseller and
winner of the Pulitzer Prize Anna Quindlen shares the events of her
own life to illuminate our own. From childhood memories to manic
motherhood to middle age, Quindlen tells life as she has lived it.
She acknowledges the passing years, from the generational shrinking
of underwear to facing the fact that her knees make ’this noise
like Rice Krispies’ when she exercises. Despite its downsides, she
says, aging brings wisdom, and a perspective that makes life
satisfying and even joyful. Honest, witty and moving, this
irresistible memoir celebrates all our lives.
