Overview

A housewife turned beloved, nationally known humorist, Erma Bombeck first began focusing a wry critical eye on the American family back when June Cleaver, not Roseanne, was the accepted model for middle-class motherhood. For more than three decades, she charmed a nation with her sassy irreverence for long-held traditions, tempered by a delightful good humor...and, always deep, abiding love. Erma Bombeck: A Life in Humor is Erma remembered as she would have wanted to be remembered. It is a celebration of an all-too-brief but ultimately triumphant life - and an extraordinary, indomitable woman whom we loved dearly for making us laugh at ourselves - generously sprinkled with the warm, wise and potent wit that is uniquely, hilariously, eternally...Erma Bombeck.
