Books! Elna Baker: The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance

I first heard one of her stories on This American Life, "Babies Buying Babies is about my time as a toy demonstrator at FAO Schwarz adopting Lee Middleton baby dolls..."

She's too funny and a great storyteller.

"The New York Regional Mormon Singles Halloween Dance is a coming of age story about Elna Baker’s experience as a practicing Mormon in New York City. Elna’s life changes when she loses eighty pounds and gets the sexual attention she’s always wanted…. only to discover that as a Mormon she can’t follow through. The book takes on identity, faith, sex and love as Elna questions traditional values in modern times. "

Today just happens to be payday and I'm in need of a new, good book.
