A great gift for the hospital-bound. I received it under just those circumstances, and it relieved many a weary afternoon.

rabck box from bookstogive 06/10; wishlist book because I'd heard of the author, but I found it hard to read. Yes, humor. But I don't agree with her opinion of her gay son's choices & that's what made it difficult to stay with the book.
