One word—Magical. I really enjoyed this first novel. The time period, characters, and setting enveloped me. This is a story of two young illusionists who are pitted against one another by their respective teachers. The venue for this contest of endurance and skill is a circus, which is both unusual and amazing as the two illusionists make it something remarkable. Falling in love was not part of the contest, but they do fall in love while being mesmerized by each other’s creations. I enjoyed every moment of it.
Vroman’s presents Sandra Tsing Loh discussing and signing Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones (at All Saints Church)

All Saints Church forum
This is not your grandmother’s menopause story. In The Madwoman in the Volvo Loh speaks hilariously and candidly about her life as a mother, daughter, and artist. She recounts her journey through a tumultuous time of life, trying to maintain appearances during an epic hormonal change. The relatable, everyday perils displayed throughout this book include: the pressures of keeping her daughters off Facebook while managing the legal and marital hijinks of her eighty-nine-year-old dad and a despairing withdrawal to a tiny cabin where she combined wine and Ambien, paralyzing her arm into a claw.
