Vroman’s presents Sandra Tsing Loh discussing and signing Madwoman in the Volvo: My Year of Raging Hormones (at All Saints Church)
05/01/2014 7:00 pm

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.
