Nancy Drew Does Yoga

My mother only liked to see her children reading ‘real’ literature, books that would ‘expand the mind’. She also had, perhaps due to homesickness or book snobbery, a strong preference for English authors. Nancy Drew fell into neither of these categories. Hence, the many hours I spent locked in the bathroom or hidden under the stairs with a volume of Nancy Drew lest my mother should find out and take my book away.
Perhaps due to the secretive nature in which I pored over her hunches and brilliant sleuthing, Nancy Drew will always have a special place in my heart.
