Title: Forever, Erma
Author: Erma Bombeck
Publish Date: January 15th, 2013
Reading Format: E-book
An anthology of Erma Bombeck’s best writing, and a tribute to one of America’s sharpest wits. (Publisher’s summary)
Erma Bombeck passed away in 1996, but for 30 plus years she wrote a syndicated newspaper column called At Wit’s End. The column talked about all things that one might experience in the average suburban life, but it was laced with lots of humor. I personally had never heard of Erma Bombeck before reading this book. I was after all only 7 when she passed and wasn’t particularly interested in anything in the newspapers that weren’t located in the funnies (though not a lot has changed in 20 years).
Forever, Erma had be laughing out loud and I was even leaving notes and highlighting sections because I wanted to locate some of things I read later to share with others. Erma’s sense of humor is exactly what I find funny, and I while I was reading this book it was all I could talk about in conversations with others. I just had to share all of Erma’s wittiness with all my family and friends.
I highly recommend reading Forever, Erma or any of her other books she has written.
