    I laughed until I cried, then I just cried - often vulgar, poignant, true to life

    In "I'm Sorry You Feel That Way," Diana Joseph provides us with a peek into her comic/tragic, fascinatingly neurotic life. Her wry sense of humor shines through, as does her huge heart and her fears. I could really relate to her and was surprised frequently by how often our lives seemed to have touched upon the same issues - I then stumbled across a paragraph that mentioned she was born in July of 1970, same as I, which was really a surprise.

    Her essays range from the hysterically funny to the down-right sad. I laughed until I cried at "Humping the Dinosaur" and later in the same essay almost cried in earnest because some of what she said so touched me.

    Ms. Joseph is NOT politically correct; she is often vulgar and makes statement that would make many people cringe. If you are a highly sensitive person, in the matter of political correctness, you probably should just skip this book. But if you are willing to open your heart and mind to what she has to say, I think you'll find Ms. Joseph's book a wonderful addition to your library.

    Now This Is What I Want from a Book

    Diana Joseph is writing straight out of The Mystery where all the good art is made. In The Mystery, all those things we don't want other people to know we said or thought or did become luminous and make us less ashamed and want to laugh more and love each other better. That's what I want from a book, and it's not that easy to find. If you're reading this, you've found yourself a book that will give you a pass into The Mystery. Buy it and use it.
