Publisher's Summary

Funny, thought provoking, and always entertaining, personal essayist Marion Winik is known for decades of storytelling on NPR and the stunning memoir First Comes Love. Memory and identity are the focus of this new collection, Guesswork, drawn from a column that has won "Best of Baltimore" from Baltimore magazine several years running.

"The Things They Googled" looks at how search engines have changed our lives. "Love, Loss, and What I Cooked" takes autobiography to the kitchen. "What If You Were Right?" and "What If You Were Wrong?" highlight the way possibly incorrect interpretations of long-ago events subtly radiate through our lives over the years.

These eight essays will inspire you to reconsider your own history and sense of self from new angles: how treasured places and objects fit in, how your life as a reader shapes who you are. A wonderful introduction to Winik's work, which now spans seven volumes chronicling her life. "Her essays are mind-blowing," according to Jane Smiley. "You can't stop reading them."

Marion Winik is the author of the new memoir Highs in the Low Fifties: How I Stumbled Through the Joys of Single Living. It joins Telling, First Comes Love, The Lunch-Box Chronicles, The Glen Rock Book of the Dead, and others in the ongoing saga of her life, now comprising seven volumes. She has appeared on the Today show, Oprah, and Politically Incorrect and was a commentator on NPR's All Things Considered for 15 years.

This is a short audiobook published by Shebooks - high-quality fiction, memoir, and journalism for women, by women.
