This book caught my eye in a second hand book store, and I thought, I wish all my days will be different. So I bought the book. It is a weird kooky story that does bounce around through the life of Eleanor, her sister, her work, meeting her husband, and the birth of their child Timby. I did laugh out loud, because this day in the life of Eleanor was certainly different. I couldn't believe that all this stuff happened to her in just one day!! She does have her epiphany in the end and accepts Joe's, her husband, new life. The people around her do care for her and even love her, which is why they put up with her and her quirky persona. And these people are drawn into this crazy day by her totally bizarre behavior. It is a quick read for riding on a bus back and forth to work with this being my first experience reading this author. Well written and entertaining. One Art by Elizabeth Bishop is included in my copy, and it was the best ending for her new and ever changing life. But what kind of name is Timby for a child?? Yep, Quirky..
