She causes women, teenagers and strong men to laugh--mostly at themselves. She sinks one good-humored barb after another into the hide of one of our fattest sacred cows: the American household, and creates delightfully classic renditions of the daily domestic scene.
In At Wit's End, Erma skips and trips through the seasons of the year, and the frustrations of everyday family life simply dissolve in the gentle acid of her wit. Anything is fair game--woman versus the car, being married to a home-repair dropout, sex education of children, the plight of buying a bathing suit in August.
"Just Wait Till You Have Children of Your Own!" brings more chuckles as Erma and Bill Keane, award-winning cartoonist, focus on life with a teenager.
In I Lost Everything in the Post-Natal Depression the smiles beging with the chapter titles, like "We Have Measles...It Must Be Christmas," and "Put Down Your Brother. You Don't Know Where He's Been."
