Very funny (if occasionally raunchy) collection of humorous essays from a sassy broad (and I mean that in the very best sense), generally focusing on the domestic. (Hint: Erma Bombeck she ain't.)

Don't be surprised if you find yourself in one of these 26 takes on frequently-frustrating modern life, from dealing with parents as an adult to passing along life's wisdom to the next generation, all with Notaro's signature cockeyed slant. (I'm in two of them, I promise you.)

And that's a large portion of what makes this book such a fun read. Your only problem will be forcing yourself to put it down between takes, the better to savor each one.
