Mark Arnold
"Phyllis Dinerman is a modern Yiddishe Mama. With an eye for irony and a humorous intelligence, she gossips, she kvells and above all, she frets over the challenges we all face in coping with everyday life in middle-class America."

Every article is one the reader can relate to...I laughed at so many funny situations the BocaYente wrote about. Her thought provoking articles at the end were very heartwarming and meaningful, as well. I highly recommend this book.
