Few women in America are as adored — and accessible — as Teri Hatcher. As the Golden Globe and Screen Actors Guild award-winner for her portrayal of ditzy divorcee Susan Mayer on ABC?s hit series Desperate Housewives, she?s attained a level of success late in her career (in Hollywood terms, anyway) that most women would kill for. But in real life, Teri deals with the same issues as so many women: divorce, single motherhood, bad dates, turning forty . . . So it?s no surprise that when Burnt Toast was published in hardcover, it received tremendous attention and went on to become a major national bestseller.
Full of Teri?s foibles and successes, unexpected vulnerability, and frank openness (from looking in the refrigerator for Mr. Right to being told by her daughter?s pediatrician that she should date more), Burnt Toast is a funny, intimate, uplifting portrait of one woman?s daily struggles and successes on the road to living an inspired life.
