by Jill Kargman
As an actress Kargman depicts quirky and cleverly funny original characters. They must be easy for her to portray because this book of essays shows us she is just as quirky and clever and funny and original. With an equally unique vernacular, Kargman shares her views and wisdom in a series of essays that explore everything from the peer pressure moms are under, to the self-affirming style choices she has personally made, to the psychological damage inflicted (unintentionally) on every person born and raised in New York. Lovably weird, hilariously goofy, Kargman will open your eyes to new ways to make sense of the world – you may even do what her family does and start reading the obituaries to find medical information and track real estate values.
