You know that thing in Wet Hot American Summer where the camp director keeps referencing Ruth Buzzi, and you are like, whodat? And maybe eventually you are like, okay, fine, I will look her up, and you find out she was a comic from the 70s and you are like, huh, what else has dropped off from pop culture without a trace?Jean Kerr, apparently. At one time she was on the cover of Time (Time?!) magazine. And very well-known, not just for the ridiculous (apparently) movie version of Please Dont Eat the Daisies. Apparently she was kind of Erma Bombeck-y, which, I have to say, I love!This book was so good that when I started reading it, I totally dropped whatever else I was reading (and seriously, I have no idea what I was reading, because it was totally eclipsed.) It is pretty breezy, but it is also really brilliant.

She does a parody of Lolita that kills me, and there were times that I was actually crying I was laughing so hard. Which is as it should be. The stories are varied and complicated and absurd. I enjoyed just following her wherever the writing took us. And the woman is just fascinating to me-- read that Time article, I implore you!
