Falling Into Manholes: The Memoir of a Bad/Good Girl
Wendy Merrill is in recovery from...just about everything. Alcoholism, anorexia, you name it, she's battled it. And as far as men, well, it might have been an early warning sign when she took a college class called Dating and Marriage and got an F.
On the surface, she was a good girl, determined to excel. Secretly she was looking for love in all the wrong places-from strangers' beds to barstools- and falling into manholes every step of the way. With honesty, humor, and style, Merrill explores relationships, self-esteem (and the lack thereof), and going to any lengths to discover what truly matters.
