Mama Mia

What a great read! I'm into autobiographies at the moment. Never really was, but now I am discovering so many unsung (and some sung) heroes, that I'm loving devouring real stories.

This one is by Mia Freedman, the long time, but no longer, editor of Cosmopolitan magazine. Freedman has a comical style made most humorous by her clever analogies. Freedman shares the dark side of life too, describing some of the situations parents face but are rarely heard of or read about. Taboo topics were her specialty when editing and are compelling reading in her book. Get past the first few pages of cringeworthy prologue and you're into the nitty gritty of life as a twenty-something go-getter in the magazine industry. There's a bit of swearing and lewdness, but ultimately it adds to the humour. Love this woman, her story, and the blingy cover to go with it!
