Made me laugh out loud and tear up, sometimes even in the same story. I love that she has a huge fear of moths, because I do also, and it makes me feel a bit vindicated.
The book is an easy read, but not all of it is light matter. There's some heavy stuff that makes you want to go hug your grandmother while she's still around and in her right mind. But the end story about truffle sniffing pigs is a bit off with the rest of the book. Oh well, nothings perfect, but this book is pretty close for me.
Introspective and wickedly funny essays on the author's life.
Quick read with some very funny moments. Can kind of jump around a little bit to various moments in her life, but her sense of humor and honesty are great. Not quite as good as David Sedaris, but along the same lines.
Funny, a nice easy read that is well written enough to make you feel like you're reading something smart.
Kaplan's book of essays are funny and sometimes heartbreaking. Though they are self-revealing, they also offer us a reflection into our own heads and hearts.
