Bad Girl Badass Books

Books you should read by some BADGIRL BADASS women: Gabrielle Hamilton

Blood, Bones and Butter by Gabrielle Hamilton

Gabrielle Hamilton learned to cook coming up through the ranks of diners and catering gigs, not at a fancy culinary academy. Her memoir opens with the summer her parents, a French mother and set-designer father, kind of lost track of her in the midst of their divorce. To keep herself going she got a job washing dishes, and ate from the mysterious jars of food her mother left behind. She has some scrapes with the law, does a stint in the catering business with tales of un-fresh and much-too-handled food, finds a very small restaurant covered in rat shit and transforms it into Prune, and falls in love with an Italian doctor, his family and Italy. This woman loves food, men (women too) and life: Agreed.  I swooned for her, Charlie Rose did too.

 

Love My Rifle More Than You by Kayla Williams

This badass soldier went to Iraq as an interpreter because she had learned a little Arabic from a bad boyfriend back in Florida.  She recounts the badassitude of the female soldier along with the dirt, grit and general confusion of war.

Wild by Cheryl StrayedCheryl Strayed

When I'm debating the safety of hiking Mt. St. Helena by myself, a popular hike with a paved path and cell phone coverage most of the way, all I need to think about Badass Cheryl Strayed, who hiked the Pacific Crest Trail (at least the part that wasn't snowed in) by herself, even when, with only 2 cents in her pocket, when on a break, her hiking boots tumbled over a cliff. (To be precise, one tumbled, she threw the other one after it). You'll have to read the book to find out how she survived that and other challenges.

What you'll remember about Cheryl, Kayla  and Gabriella is that they perservered because they just couldn't afford to quit.

Who can?
