The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus (2011)

A story written entirely in verse, The Hunchback of Neiman Marcus takes us on a journey of Holly's struggles - from turning 50 to her daughter heading off to college. Holly is an author who is being pressured to finish her book by an editor who acts like she is barely 12. Holly discovers that she is going through menopause as her doctor tells her she no longer has to wear a diaphragm. When her cousin Alice comes over for a "I've got a broken heart" sob, it ends up with the pair proclaiming rights for women - but instead of burning their bras, they burn Holly's diaphragms. This is the perfect companion guide for any woman entering the menopause and/or empty nest syndrome stages of live. (PP)
