Introducing...Lots of Candles, Plenty of Cake by Anna Quindlen
Introducing books through the first paragraph or so...
It's odd when I think of the arc of my life, from child to young woman to aging adult. First I was who I was. Then I didn't know who I was. Then I invented someone and became her. Then I began to like what I'd invented. And finally I was what I was again.
