Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life

Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life - Amy Krouse Rosenthal

Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life

This collection of entries muses on the stuff of daily life, both trivial and essential. Readers get a full and rich sense of one woman's life--ordinary, perhaps, but extraordinary in the sense that her observations are so dead-on and universal.
A memoir in bite-size chunks from the author of the viral Modern Love column "You May Want to Marry My Husband."

" Rosenthal] shines her generous light of humanity on the seemingly humdrum moments of life and shows how delightfully precious they actually are." --The Chicago Sun-Times

How do you conjure a life? Give the truest account of what you saw, felt, learned, loved, strived for? For Amy Krouse Rosenthal, the surprising answer came in the form of an encyclopedia. In Encyclopedia of an Ordinary Life she has ingeniously adapted this centuries-old format for conveying knowledge into a poignant, wise, often funny, fully realized memoir.

Using mostly short entries organized from A to Z, many of which are cross-referenced, Rosenthal captures in wonderful and episodic detail the moments, observations, and emotions that comprise a contemporary life. Start anywhere--preferably at the beginning--and see how one young woman's alphabetized existence can open up and define the world in new and unexpected ways.

An ordinary life, perhaps, but an extraordinary book.
