Lines from a recent or upcoming book

"Recently I've also started to regret christening myself Blythe Young. I chose the name at the end of my sophomore year at Abilene High School. It was a decided improvement over the one my mother had saddled me with, Chanterelle Young. I was tired of being taken for either a stripper or, far worse, exactly what I was, the daughter of a trailer-trash tramp of a mother too stupid to know that in her single, solitary moment of maternal lyricism she had named her only child after a mushroom."

-- How Perfect Is That, by Sarah Bird (Knopf; $23.95; available June 12)
