An anthology of Erma Bombeck’s best writing, and a tribute to one of America’s sharpest wits

When she began writing her regular newspaper column in 1965, Erma Bombeck’s goal was to make housewives laugh. Thirty years later, she had published more than four thousand columns, and earned countless laughs—from housewives, presidents, and everyone in between. With grace, good humor, and razor-sharp prose, she gently skewered every aspect of the American family. This collection holds the best of her columns—not just her famous quips, but also the heartbreaking observations that gave her writing such weight.
 
In 1969, Erma wrote: “screaming kids, unpaid bills, green leftovers, husbands behind newspapers, basketballs in the bathroom. They’re real . . . they’re warm . . . they’re the only bit of normalcy left in this cockeyed world, and I’m going to cling to it like life itself.” Three decades later, Bombeck’s writing remains a timeless examination of the still-cockeyed world.
 
This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

This is a selection of Erma Bombecks most-loved and most requested articles, selected after her death and with a selection of Tributes after the articles, all of which are heartwarming. Yes some things other than humour creep in but she' s a great character with a fun attitude to life. Beside the humour is a lot of truth and maybe that's why she continues to be fresh, while some of the details may be a little dated.It would be hard to pick any one that particularly stands out but now that it's coming up to christmas I really empathise with her husband present buying issues.read more
