Sunbathing in a Body Cast is an autobiographical journey through the quirky, frenetic mind of Rebecca Rine-Stone. While weaving memories with present life, Rine-Stone creates essays that are self-deprecatingly humorous yet always deeply personal and honest. She delves into and magnifies reflections on everyday life as well as more serious topics such as sickness and mortality and she tackles such obstacles without self-pity, but rather with outward optimism, hope and sassy sarcasm. Subjects range from going through the Dairy Queen drive-thru in a body cast in the back of a station wagon to her ongoing aversion to growing up. Having come to no solid conclusions about life except that weâre all in this mess together, Rine-Stone proves itâs easier and better to be nothing more than yourself and nothing less than yourself.
