LOL. A compilation of her short 2-page columns in the Readers' Digest. Very funny about everyday things. Sort of an Erma Bombeck but snarkier.

Review
An interesting idea--what if you found out something terrible about someone you thought you knew--told terribly badly. The writer throws in a dozen undeveloped characters, ridiculous cooncidences, and langauge clunky enough to make me roll my eyes. No idea why this has been on the NYT list for so long.
