Snake Hips: Belly Dancing and How I Found True Love by Anne Thomas Soffee
Snake Hips is a hilariously uplifting memoir of self-discovery and finding love. Anne Soffee moves back to Richmond, VA, after her tattoo-artist boyfriend dumps her. Answering an ad for belly dancing lessons, she finds a focus, a passion, and an activity that allows her to reconnect with her Lebanese roots. Mixing belly dancing triumphs and catastrophes, dating disasters, and finally finding Mr. Right, Snake Hips is a witty, hilarious, well-told story. While this is not a how-to book, resources for those who want to learn more about belly dancing are included.
