In this warm, deeply-personal, and often humorous book, Nancy McCabe re-examines and gains new understanding of her early life and her ill-advised marriage. Borrowing from Bosch's Garden of Earthly Delights and Kafka's "Metamorphosis," how-to essays and before-and-after weight loss ads, a curriculum guide, Bible study notes, an obsession with Tom Swiftie jokes, and women's magazine columns and quizzes that oversimplified women's lives and choices, McCabe examines the many influences that led to her youthful marriage--and out of it, into finally taking control of her life.
