Awesome and Inspirational
I loved this book. It's a very quick read. This is the story of Jerry and Elaine Orbach's love, to put it simply. There's a bit of each of their history in here, but mostly this is an illustration of the kind of marriage we would all love to have. Jerry wrote Elaine poems on the back of a cat a day calendar for years, and she saved them all. In this book, you get to read some of those poems. SO wonderful and inspiring to see what love could and should be!Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

This is a combination memoir and poetry book as Elaine Orbach tells the audience about her marriage to the late actor Jerry Orbach
This is a combination memoir and poetry book as Elaine Orbach tells the audience about her marriage to the late actor Jerry Orbach, starting with how they met in the first half of the biography. That section is interesting but nothing extraordinary. The latter half of the book consists of short poems that for the most part are lighthearted ditties that the late actor scribbled on a cat calendar before a shooting. His wife Elaine would read and enjoy them before tossing them into a tureen. At his funeral several were read in loving memory and eventually led to the book. Is this great literature? No as some of the entries are inane, others poorly written and few complex beyond simple rhyming. Yet the poems are inspiring and enjoyable. Readers will who appreciated Law and Order will relish seeing another side of the actor; his love for his beloved Elaine as the couple reminds us how important it is to tell your loved ones you care while they still can appreciate the mental hugs.Was this review helpful?
