I had not read anything by Rita Rudner before, though I have enjoyed her on-stage comedy. I was a bit skeptical before starting this book, as many comics are much funnier on stage than on the page. What a pleasant surprise to find that Ms. Rudner is a good writer, and her humor translates well to book form. I am also in my fifties and could identify with a lot that she mentioned. In addition to the humor, I was touched by the stories of her father's final days, and her dog Bonkers. I plan to look up her earlier books now, and hope that she plans another one soon !
