Barbara Holland, a writer whose humorous essays sang the simple pleasures of drinking martinis, cursing and eating fatty foods, and who wrote an evocative best-selling memoir of her childhood and adolescence in the Washington suburbs, died on Sept. 7 at her home in Bluemont, Va. She was 77.
Since reading that; I've been thinking I should read When all the world was young. Did any of you read it? Or anything else by Barbara Holland? Should I?
I've now read Bossypants and yes, I loved it.
