Synopsis: Bad things happen to everyone, and this collection provides just the right dose of irreverence to help you laugh at life and all its nasty surprises. Inspired by the author's profoundly pessimistic grandmother, it offers wry, world-weary ruminations on a sampler of life's themes, including: Health ("The only way to keep your health is to eat what you don't want, drink what you don't like, and do what you'd rather not." —Mark Twain); Love ("The surest way to be alone is to get married." —Gloria Steinem); and Money ("I have enough money to last the rest of my life, unless I buy something." —Jackie Mason). Enjoy.
About the Author: Eric Marcus is the author of a dozen books on sociology, sexuality and suicide.
