Crossed, Legs Uncrossed: Jen LiMarzi
had a date eat a floral centerpiece at a wedding? Ever thought the
Olympics should be held in the New York City subway system? Ever
wondered why you dead bolt your front door but leave your wallet
under a flip flop at the beach? Fingers Crossed, Legs Uncrossed
explores these subjects and more while offering a hilarious glimpse
of an ordinary person experiencing life in extraordinary ways.
Journey through life with a perpetual underdog who contemplates
the mass return of the heinous station wagon and obsesses about
being "pee-shy" in the workplace restroom, all while trying
to survive a daily commute.
Despite the cynicism and sardonic wit that bites through much of
Fingers Crossed, Legs Uncrossed, optimism prevails as often does
After breaking up with someone for the third time, being laid off
for the second, or being pushed on the subway for what is sworn
to be "the last", laugh about how someone else deals with
a series of urban adventures hoping for the best and just keeping
Fingers Crossed, Legs Uncrossed.
What we thought:
I took this book away with me on our Summer holiday recently and
I thoroughly enjoyed it. Lazing in the sun, reading Jen's hilarious
thoughts about life made the perfect activity for relaxing. This
book has a combination of short pieces, with topics from dating,
to riding the subway. She has recorded her amusing accounts of every
day life, and like most women, obviously spends a lot of time thinking
about ways life could be easier.
My favourite was her thoughts on "ever wondered why you dead
bolt your front door but leave your wallet under a flip flop at
the beach?" Being at the beach while I was reading it, certainly
made me think!
Well done Jen, this is a great little book and I look forward to
reading more of your work.
