Blown Sideways Through Life Hardcover – 1995
Top Customer Reviews
had the same feeling I get when someone sits down beside me
on the bus and starts telling me about their life (which happens
more often than I'd like, for some reason). I was learning more
about this person's day-to-day life than any real facts about
them. By the time I finished it I felt like I'd been so
entranced that I got off the bus and finished listening to what
she had to say in a coffee shop. My highest compliment is that
this is a person I'd call to meet me for coffee again, and I
wouldn't presume to try to "one up" her with my own experiences.
The author's life beats anyone else's I've ever heard of in
It was entrancing, funny, and exceptionally well written. Oh, that I
could invite the author to dinner.
I realise that it is now hard to find with no new printing in sight, but if you ever do spot a copy somewhere, you need it. If you went to university and ended up flipping burgers, buy it. If you've ever found yourself in a strange place after having lied your way into employment and about to do something you're having second thoughts about, buy it. If you're just entering the work force for the first or sixty fourth time, buy it!
