Editorial Reviews

Review

"Beth's wit is sharp, / sketching showbiz, life, time, love: / funny, poignant ... real." -- LA City Beat

"Straddling the genres of humor, self-help and haiku...Did I Wake You? is drawing much attention for its inspirational power." -- Tucson Weekly

"[A] funny, surprising, inspirational, world-conscious, and deeply personal new book." -- The Satellite Sisters

If you never imagined that you could laugh with and be intrigued by a book of poetry, now is the time to reconsider. -- Feminist Review

By R. Newman on August 5, 2007
Format: Paperback
You know that great feeling when you're looking at birthday cards (or cards for other occasions), and one jumps out at you that captures exactly what you want to say to the person you're giving it to? It's like it was written for you and for that person. It's as if nothing else could more perfectly sum it all up... Well, this book is like having shelves and shelves of really smart, witty, thoughtful and relevant messages right at your fingertips. Pages of insights that sum it all up. As great haikus should, the three line phrases in this book paint vivid mental images - you'll laugh, you'll cry, you'll wonder how the heck the author could say so much so precisely and efficiently. She has a gift. The book is a great gift. You'll want your own copy and a few to share.

Charming and witty. Open to any page and find words to live by. I've bought three of them because each time a friend looks at it, I have to give it away.
