Lucky Me is that rare book that capturesa€”in the vein of Elinor Lipman and Elizabeth Berga€”what it really means to be a modern woman. Julie Berman seems to have it all: a beautiful home in suburban New Jersey, a loving husband, a budding career as a freelance journalist, and two great kids. To the outside world, her life is perfecta€”little do they know that behind the faAsade, Julie is beginning to feel like her world is falling apart. Among her worries is a nagging fear that shea€™s turning into her mothera€”just as neurotic, just as crazy, and just as consumed by appearances. Then therea€™s the handsome, charming, and quite single editor at the local newspaper who has definitely taken a liking to her . . . which wouldna€™t be a problem if he wasna€™t so tempting. Add to that her moody, monosyllabic teenage son, who may or may not be having sex with a new girlfriend (whom Juliea€™s not sure she approves of, sex or not). But the final blow to her sanity comes in the form of a phone call from her daughter, who informs Julie of her plans to run off with her boyfriend . . . whoa€™s also her college professor. Lucky Me is a journey into the year when everything seems to come to a head in Juliea€™s lifea€”and when she realizes that there are some things you cana€™t control, especially the people you love. Wise, irreverent, tender, and funny, Lucky Me is for every woman who has ever felta€”despite her most valiant effortsa€”less than perfect. From the Hardcover edition.The college application, we agreed, was a metaphor for her whole life: full of surprises, moments of solemn depth, and a smattering of bullshit. ... Then, I almost missed it, written so casually, so faintly, in pencil, under the heading, Any Other Notable Distinctions. ... Her favorite applications had a choice of essays, where one leaned more toward the creative and seemed less like a campaign promise.
