Book Club Selection for June 2011

Join the Momicillin Book club in June by reading Elizabeth Berg’s wonderful collection of short stories: THE DAY I ATE WHATEVER I WANTED. Elizabeth will be joining us for a live video chat on June 28th at 9PM EST (how lucky are we??!!)


THE DAY I ATE WHATEVER I WANTED is a thoughtful, whimsical, entertaining collection of short stories about food and family, love and loneliness, denial and the triumph of desires.

“Pitch-perfect . . . [encompasses] everything you’ve ever felt, but couldn’t put into tangible words.”
—Chicago Tribune

“Hard to resist . . . funny and occasionally heartbreaking.”—Entertainment Weekly

“Berg at her tart best . . . There is plenty of lemony snap to brighten the sweetness that flows through The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted, a book that shows how well this writer understands women’s wants, strengths and foibles.”—Hartford Courant

“Reading The Day I Ate Whatever I Wanted is a lot like eating comfort food: it offers great satisfaction. . . . Berg understands the need we all feel to break free of strictures . . . and how small rebellions can lead to understanding.”—New York Post
