Item description for Falling Awake: An American Woman Gets a Grip on the Whole Changing World, One Essay at a Time by Mary Lou Sanelli...
This very personal and readable collection of essays examines those moments in the author's life since Sept. 11, 2001, which have led to her questioning her own meaningfulness. Sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, but always accessible and touching, these essays don't just lecture; they search. These truly are glimpses of one woman's attempt to make sense of the world "one essay at a time."
