This collection of Anna Quindlen's essays and columns indeed marks her as an unrepentant humanistic left-wing bleeding-heart liberal. In other words, a woman after my own heart. My favorite of these is a column on pg 118 called "Enough Bookshelves", about her joy at infecting her oldest boy with her own love of reading. It captures some of my own passion for books and reading, and my hope to be able to pass this love on to my own boys (I think Ben has caught the bug, and there's still hope for Jacob). ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0449909050, Paperback)

"A splendid collection...Eloquent, powerful, compassionate and droll. There is considerable variety in the subjects she addresses....Compelling."
Thinking out loud is what Anna Quindlen does best. A syndicated columnist with her finger on the pulse of women's lives, and her heart in a place we all share, she writes about the passions, politics, and peculiarities of Americans everywhere. From gays in the military, to the race for First Lady, to the trials of modern motherhood and the right to choose, Anna Quindlen's views always fascinate.
More of her views can be found in LIVING OUT LOUD, and OBJECT LESSONS.
