Any Place I Hang My Hat by Susan Isaacs
Amy Lincoln, the heroine of Any Place I Hang My Hat, grew up without parents. She was an infant when her mother left and her father spent most of her childhood in prison. Her grandmother, a part-time leg waxer who would shoplift dinner, was her legal guardian, but Amy mostly raised herself. After a boarding school scholarship, Harvard, and the Columbia School of Journalism, Amy overcome her lowly beginnings to move among the rich and powerful. Working as a political reporter, she's present at a campaign event for a presidential candidate when a man shows us claiming to be the candidate's out-of-wedlock son. Amy helps the young man, and his questionable parentage spurs her to investigate her own past, discovering surprises about her own family. Susan Isaacs' novel has received mostly positive reviews with the Seattle Times saying, "Any Place I Hang My Hat is full of snappy dialogue and witty comebacks, but it's a book with substance and a big heart - a rarity in these days of women's fiction dominated by shallow husband-hunts and designer shop-a-thons."
