Snake hips: belly dancing and how I found true love – Anne Thomas SoffeeJanuary 29, 2009 at 1:31 pm | Posted in Books, Non-Fiction, Reviews, Suggestions | Leave a comment
This chatty, witty memoir covers a few years of the authors life in which she recovers from a breakup, survives various dating disasters, makes friends, nuts out her quirky family, and also learns belly dancing.
It’s not a how-to of belly dancing although what she says is true and some reliable sources are listed.
And it’s not an in-depth history of the author’s Lebanese heritage – but it is a lot of fun.
Anne Soffee writes with humour, perception, compassion for the human foibles of those around her, and well-judged pacing.
