I enjoyed this memoir about a comedy writer's decade-plus of single girl travels around the globe, from Argentina to Iceland to New Zealand (and much more). It gets repetitive after a while, but I appreciated Newman's willingness to paint herself in an unflattering light at times, and her refusal to apologize for her "vacationships" gave a refreshing feminist slant to the concept of sowing one's wild oats. Nothing profound here, but a fast, funny read nonetheless.

Fluffy and funny. Girls in their 30s will relate. A lighter Eat, Pray, Love.
