I was trying to pick a favorite story, but they really are all good. Fits me to a T is hysterical and the menopause story should be read by everyone going through this. I liked the nostalgic stories alot too.
I read your book (I'm a faithful follower of your blog) before I read the new David Sedaris book. I've a HUGE Sedaris fan, but after reading your book, I found myself comparing it to yours. Yours is better. You are both talented writers but your funny stuff is funnier and your stories are warmer. Cheryl
What a find! This book is full of funny stories, and I find myself quoting some of the lines to my friends. They think I'm hysterical. I've told everyone I can about your book. You really deserve a huge audience. There are also some nice warm touches and that's what separates you from a lot of humor writers. This is a funny book for thinking people, but it's not snide or mean. I loved it.
Rick is a very talented writer with a wonderful sense of humor. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys humorous "slice of life" stories. The book is actually a collection of various columns, each about 2-4 pages. Very easy to read and really funny. I really enjoyed this book and look forward to his next.
