How She Knows ... cover
August 2004
How She Knows What She Knows About Yo-Yos
by Mary Ann Taylor-Hall

Freud asked what women want, and some decades later the Rolling Stones opined that while you can’t always get what you want, it is sometimes possible to get what you need. The stories in How She Knows What She Knows About Yo-Yos spin multiple variations on the themes of wants and needs, as played out in the lives of five very different women. The protagonists in these stories differ in age, cultural background, and marital status, and they live in far-flung locations. But they share the problem of defining just what it is that they want and need—which is to say, of course, the problem of defining themselves. Through telling observations, flashes of humor, keen insight, and compassion, author Mary Ann Taylor-Hall draws us into their stories ... and into their hearts.
