I picked up Sloane Crosley's I Was Told There'd Be Cake on a whim. Also, If you know me at all, I'm never one to turn down any type of desert! This book is filled with short essays (the perfect length for the commute on the train) that cover a wide range of topics that include comparing life to the classic game Oregon Trail, getting locked out of your apartment twice in one day to handling unspeakable, hilarious circumstances with friends from the past.
Crosley's second book How Did You Get This Number, due out on June 15, 2010, is sure to be as clever and frank as her first book. Her writing style proves more than enough to us that we could easily be friends and exchange a few battle stories, no problem. Pick up her books and get ready to have a good laugh.
