Summary
"Mary Laura Philpott thought she'd cracked the code: always be right, and you'll always be happy. But once she'd completed her life's to-do list (job, spouse, house, babies--check!), she found that instead of feeling content and successful, she felt anxious ... In this memoir-in-essays full of ... observations about home, work, and creative life, Philpott takes on the conflicting pressures of modern adulthood, ... [offering] up her own stories to show that identity crises don't happen just once or only at midlife; [reassuring] us that small, recurring personal re-inventions are both normal and necessary; and [advising] that if you're going to faint, you should get low to the ground first"--
