On My Knees is Periel Aschenbrand’s heavily humorous follow-up to her debut memoir The merely Bush I belief Is My Own.
At the start of On My Knees, we discover Periel chain-smoking her days away on a plastic-covered sofa, observing reruns of Law & Order whereas she squats in her deceased grandmother’s residence and adjusts to being by myself for the 1st time in a decade. So starts a Dante-esque trip in the course of the many earrings of single-girl hell that incorporates loopy one-night stands; an dangerous attachment to a dental hygienist; a run-in with Philip Roth; and, in any case, a visit to Israel and an come upon with a guy who simply may be the one.
Hysterical and heartfelt, On My Knees strains Periel’s riotous try and rebuild her existence, her relationships, and her trademark confidence.
