This Book Will Change Your Life - Grease Stains, Kismet and Maternal Wisdom by Mel Bosworth.

Mel Bosworth is love. Or more accurately maybe, the Bosworth's new book Grease Stains, Kismet and Maternal Wisdom is love, getting it, longing for it, searching for it, recognizing what a fluke it is, but wanting it anyway, even as you know you could lose it any time, because nothing is better, happier, yet still filled with dread, hate and fear, though even then there is magic, and sex, lots of sweaty awesome sex, that you're not even sure when or how it will come, but that's okay, because there is magic, and magic realism, and is there any better reason for magic realism to even exist then to try and describe love, something you're writing even as your experiencing it, something Mel does here so wonderfully, the awe and passion and wonder, always wonder, because love is ultimately about wonder, well that and hope, and okay, celebration, its everything maybe, love is everything. And Mel Bosworth is love. For real.

Don't be so wishy-washy - is Bosworth love, or not?

Maybe, yes, definitely, we think so, but will feel better when our focus groups confirm this.
