Women talk to women easily; they get down to the nitty-gritty, intimate details of relationships without much ado. But, when it comes to money, it's a very different story. With the input of financial experts, sociologists, psychologists and hundreds of women who have had trouble dealing with filthy lucre, Liz Perle explores this perplexing phenomenon in Money, a Memoir. She got to this subject the hard way a sudden reversal of fortune left her with her four-year-old son and without home, husband or job and she weaves in her own experiences and ambivalent feelings about money, dependence and independence, offering insight and advice about reaching a realistic reckoning with material matters. Ms. Perle reads.
