I find the sub-title more compelling than the title -- I struggle with the grammar of the first part of the title -- it isn't right and I don't know how to fix it.
Some of the stories feel incomplete. I still don't know what African American boobies are. I missed the point of some -- failing to see a groundbreaking epiphany in a detailed psychotherapy session filled with too many words. On the other hand, Jennifer D. Munro and Patricia Bunin contribute tightly written pieces filled with pathos and humor. They tell me all I need to know, yet leave me wanting to hear more.
TBTB,TTTS has the typical qualities of an anthology -- some stellar pieces and some that feel like padding. The good ones make the book a worthwhile read.
