"If you want laughs, you don’t usually turn to spiritual memoirs. But Jessica Maxwell’s Roll Around Heaven
is so full of LOL moments, it fits the bill. Her adventure starts after her father dies and she sees his face up in the sky, and over the next few years she has one passing strange encounter after another. Think Dave Sedaris meets Eat, Pray, Love
. Or Lucille Ball (Maxwell’s also a redhead) meets Tuesdays with Morrie
. Maxwell is exuberant, grumpy, skewering, wise and so gosh-darn good-hearted in her quest to understand the universe, I couldn’t help wanting to tag along for the ride-er, roll."
