While reading this book, which was described by People as “… a landmark woman’s novel,” I could literally feel my penis inverting itself and turning into a vagina. The book is full of insights on the life of aging women, including sex, relationships, abortions, sex, marriage, sex, and sex. The book doesn’t even pretend to have a plot; instead, it’s the sporadic writings of the author. Every time she has a hot flash, she opens her journal and writes. The anecdotes she shares will make you laugh, make you cry, but mostly, make you vaguely uncomfortable the next time you make eye contact with your mother. Raskin is incredibly candid and vivid in her recollections of being a wealthy housewife in the 50’s and 60’s. Here are some ACTUAL QUOTES from the novel to entice you to never, ever, ever fucking read it:
- “Wow, look at that sweet pussy,” he said. “I could eat it for five days running.”
- “Judith holds our record for abortions with 8. She had one in Cuba before the revolution and one after.”
- “Aren’t you going to kiss me first?” Glenda asked the gynecologist as he started doing a pelvic on her.
If any of that sounds enjoyable to you, ask your doctor about Prozac.

Leonard Maltin’s Movie Encylopedia
This guy invented IMDB, like holy fuck, dude’s a genius. This book is a 2 pound literature masterpiece. He listed every movie and actor for the year of 1994. It’s impressive. He should sue those copy cats at IMDB.

A true visionary for the future!
