REVIEWED BY LISA KAY GREISSINGER
This satisfying collection of diaries from 34 women across America details the events of one day in the lives of each: June 29, 2004. From Laraine Harper, manager of a legal brothel near Las Vegas and mother hen to 25 prostitutes, to Cady Coleman, an astronaut managing parenthood and a long-distance marriage, to the sole celebrity—Johnny Cash's daughter Rosanne (below)—each writes honestly about her day. The ensemble is simultaneously mundane and captivating—it resonates with drama, humor and pathos. This is one unremarkable day you'll wish could go on forever.
