ME­MOIR (HAMISH HAMIL­TON) BY DEB­O­RAH LEVY, $22.

Mov­ing from hu­mor­ous to heart­break­ing and in­spir­ing to in­fu­ri­at­ing, this “liv­ing me­moir” by Deb­o­rah Levy frankly and un­abashedly cap­tures mod­ern woman­hood as she de­scribes the fail­ure of her mar­riage, the death of her mother, a shift­ing re­la­tion­ship with her chil­dren and the dis­il­lu­sion of the life she knew. Past in­ter­twines with present as she touches on the lives and plights of many other women she meets, and she at­tempts to un­der­stand, un­der­mine and re­de­fine dated gen­der ex­pec­ta­tions at the age of 50.
