Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Move over, Bailey White, Dave Barry, and Garrison Keillor, and make room for P.S. Wall, America's freshest and funniest new humorist. In her first collection of essays, Wall, a syndicated columnist, reveals her off-the-wall view of life. This book will touch not only your heart, but your funny bone as well.

On children

Strangely, every one of my friends has given birth to an "advanced and gifted" child. How they know this when Kid still can't hold his head up, I'm not sure. Maybe it's the way he eats. Apparently normal children chew and swallow. Gifted kids let you fill up their mouths and then stare at you until the pabulum dries to a concrete-like consistency. You have to wonder why we need schools.
-- Women need to talk. It's one of our basic requirements, right up there with food, shelter, and a good moisturizer with a sunscreen.
-- Children: Some animals eat their young. With humans it's the other way around.
-- Crime: The first time I got robbed, the thief stole all my underwear.
-- Cars: I used to be able to tell one car from another. A Cadillac looked like a Cadillac and a Honda looked like a sewing machine.
-- Retirement is like sex. Men love to talk about it, but when the time comes, they're good for about 15 minutes, and then they're dying to put their tie back on.
-- Relationships: Some women run with wolves, but the majority would be much happier with your basic lap dog.
