About this title


What Liz Carpenter has written is a reflection on the life experiences of a woman, albeit an extraordinary woman, from youth and career, marriage and motherhood, widowhood, and the joys and adventures of a happy middle age.

From Library Journal:

Carpenter ( Ruffles and Flourishes ) was a reporter, LBJ's vice-presidential aide, and Lady Bird's press secretary, and she does have a story to tell. Someone else should have told it, however. "Sixty-five years! My Medicare birthday! The day I have marked to begin writing an account of my life and the wisdoms I have learned," she says in her introduction. Her writing is self-indulgent and cluttered with trite phrases, flowery prose, and more than one "oh my" and "just imagine." She does have a fine sense of humor and is at her best when reminiscing about Lyndon Johnson and Capitol politics. You want Getting Better to get better. Unfortunately, it doesn't.
