Claire Dederer is different. She picks out private exploits that people rarely mention except to bosom buddies. By writing about them she makes her readers play the buddy role while she is the exhilarating friend: smart, clever, serious and funny.

Synopsis

At mid-life, Claire Dederer developed a sudden yearning for jailbreak. In this exuberant memoir, she reflects on two periods in her life uncannily similar in their emotional intensity: her present experience as a middle-aged mom in the grip of unruly and mysterious new hungers, and her recollections of herself as a teenager. Blazingly intelligent, wickedly funny, and piercingly honest, in Love and Trouble Dederer captures the perils and pleasures of girlhood, womanhood, and life itself.
