The incomparable Lisa Scottoline, along with Daughter Francesca, is back with more wild and wonderful wit and wisdom.
New York Times bestselling author Lisa Scottoline struck a chord with readers, book clubs, and critics with her smash-hit essay collection, Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog. This time, Lisa teams up with Daughter Francesca to give their mother-daughter perspective on everything from blind dates to empty calories, as well as life with the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, Mother Mary, who won’t part with her thirty-year-old bra. Three generations of women, triple the laughs---and the love.
Inspired by their weekly “Chick Wit” column for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets---which will sound a lot like yours. And you’ll have to put this book down, just to stop laughing.
LISA ON DIETING: I’m backsliding with carbohydrates, which is the food version of ex-sex.
FRANCESCA ON CUTTING THE CORD: I thought I said, “I am going to see my cousin’s new apartment,” but in Mom-speak that translates to: “I am going to meet certain death in the New York City subway tunnels that are soon to be my tomb.”
LISA ON MOTHER MARY: Most people have a list of Things To Do, but Mother Mary has a list of Things Not To Do. At the top is Don’t Go to the Movies. Other entries include Don’t Eat Outside With The Bugs and Don’t Walk All Over This Cockamamie Mall.
FRANCESCA ON BEING SINGLE: I’m addicted to the wedding announcements. Worse, I find myself subtracting my age from the bride’s. I thought I was a modern woman, turns out I’m a Cathy cartoon.
LISA ON AGING GRACEFULLY: Today I noticed my first gray hair. On my chin.
And so much more!
