Just the knowledge that a good book is awaiting one at the end of a long day makes that day happier. ~Kathleen Norris, Hands Full of Living, 1931

Born with Teeth by Kate Mulgrew
Oh man, oh man! I loved this book! I was somewhat familiar with Kate Mulgrew, the actress, but until I read her memoir Born with Teeth, I didn't realize what all she had been in including movies, TV shows, and more. I think the only thing I've seen her in consistently is Orange Is the New Black. She plays Red, the cook. And very well, as you know if you've seen it. This book was so well written, funny, sad, and plain old powerful. She really bared her soul and shared things that only a true daredevil would do. Read it. I tell you, read it. And yes, she was born with teeth!
