How to Be An American Housewife
By the Burrow on October 12, 2011
Once again, BlogHer is paying me to review a novel. Though I received the book for free, my opinions are my own and untainted by any untoward interference from anyone..... just in case you were wondering. TBG got a kick out of seeing the spine of Margaret Dilloway's debut novel. "Really? You're reading a how to book at this late date?" Not exactly, but kinda sorta.Margaret Dilloway drops us into middle America circa 1950. Like Shoko, Charlie's Japanese war bride, we are up that creek without a paddle, except for our guidebook, How to Be an American Housewife. But, like Shoko, I am strong and resilient and I know what I must do, so I soldier on and plow through the most melancholy first half of a novel that I have ever read.Sigh.
