Today’s review comes to us from Erin!
My Hollywood by Mona Simpson
Perfect for: literary fiction enthusiasts, fans of Simpson’s previous work Anywhere but Here, new moms and working women.
Why they’ll love it: This is one of those books that you finish, put down, and then can’t stop thinking about weeks later. This is beautifully written, thought-provoking look at the effects of children on a marriage, women’s roles in the workplace and the home, motherhood, sacrifice and the relationship working women have with their children’s caregivers. It wasn’t always easy for me to read it, but I want to discuss it with all of the smart women I know, which is definitely the sign of a book worth reading!
