display_description 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 laughsfrom 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 columnsnot 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.
