Staff Recommendation: Mennonite in a Little Black Dress

Hovering between hilarious and heartwarming—always smart and sensitive—Janzen's memoir reads like a conversation with a favorite friend. With gentle irony and love, she lays bare the collapse of her tempestuous marriage and her return to the traditional Mennonite community that raised her. It is a story of belonging, of coming home, and of the laughter that lives in tragedy.
