A hilarious piece of fiction that wants to be a treatise on woman's work.
In Search of the Holy Mother of Jobs relates the unapologetic, sometimes painful and often hilarious reflections of a Hell yes! Texas woman doing her level best to make a living.
In Search of the Holy Mother of Jobs is a hilarious piece of fiction that wants to be a treatise on woman's work. The protagonist, a left-handed, eccentric, impractical, idealistic, and procrastinating woman, insists that she must be a wife and mother, she must also be a writer, but, like anybody else, she must be a person who earns enough of a living to keep body, soul and family together. The book's grace comes from her vision, a sort of insistent, surrealistic—deadly at times, comical at others, but always heroic—struggle with the world.
