Summary So you escaped the humdrum little town where you grew up and moved to The Big City. Maybe it was New York. Maybe it was Seattle or Kansas City. Wherever it was, there was amazing stuff everywhere you turned: Ethiopian food! An indie movie theater that played documentaries! A hair salon for curly girls! To live in this mecca, you overlooked the proximity of your kitchen to your bed, and the fact that you had to take public transportation to see nature. But then you got a job offer you couldn't refuse. Or you developed asthma. Or you got pregnant. Or you got pregnant for the second time and you couldn't use your closet as a bedroom for two babies. And you decided you had to leave. When Frank Sinatra and Alicia Keys said that if you could make it in New York, you could make it anywhere, they probably weren't talking about whatever suburb you used to make fun of. Can you "make it" without world-class museums and gourmet food trucks. Erin Clune regales readers with priceless stories of her own experiences leaving New York for her hometown in Wisconsin, and provides a jocular but useful guide to finding contentment--while staying true to yourself--in a place far, far away from The Big City.
