GETTING DISCOVERED – Memoirist Chooses “They Only Eat Their Husbands” as Book of the Week

Oct 6, 2011 | Books, Cara's Adventures

If you haven’t yet read my travel memoir, They Only Eat Their Husbands (Ghost Road Press, Nov 2010), please check out these compelling reasons from memoirist, blogger, and world traveler Susan Blumberg-Kason, who chose it as her: Book of the Week.

I felt honored and humbled to read her unsolicited review. And I was the most tickled by one basic phrase that seems to follow the book wherever it goes: “Lee’s utter and complete honesty.” I chuckle as I wonder if there are a few people for whom this idea is more like: “Lee’s utter and complete lack of shame.” Whatever the draw, my editor has told me that books from small presses get discovered over time. I’m grateful to see he’s right, and to share this find with you… in case you haven’t found it yet.
