Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0836226844, Hardcover)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.

When Erma Bombeck died this spring, she left a legacy that few writers could hope to achieve- more than 4,500 columns and twelve best-selling books that deeply touched millions of readers and fans.
