9780836226843: Forever, Erma: Best-Loved Writing from America's Favorite Humorist

When Erma Bombeck died on April 22, 1996, she left behind something that few writers could hope to bequeath--a written legacy of more than 4,500 columns and twelve bestselling books and a personal legacy that deeply touched millions of readers and fans throughout her 25-year career. Including more than 120 full-length columns, Forever, Erma is a very special collection that allows Erma's fans to revisit some of their favorite moments with this gentle presence who always reminded us not to take ourselves too seriously.

Review:

Erma Bombeck occupied a seat of honor in the homes of millions of Americans. Hers was inevitably the column you read aloud at the breakfast table, the piece you tore out on the bus to send to your mother, or the clipping you stuck on the fridge as a chuckling reminder of our modern lives' sublime ridiculousness. Bombeck had an eye for our common experience and a knack for throwing it into touching relief; we laughed because we saw ourselves in her work. She died last April, and this collection--the profits of which benefit her favorite charities--pulls together some of her best loved columns. The columns span Bombeck's career and the book includes tributes delivered at her memorial service.

About the Author:

Beloved for her wry yet warm look at family life, Erma Bombeck was America's favorite humorist at the time of her death in 1996. Ten of her 13 books, including Forever, Erma, appeared on the New York Times best-seller list. She claimed her first fiction writing was the weather forecast in the Dayton Herald. Her favorite food was pasta, and her hobby was dust.
