It's been said that Christee Gabour Atwood is Dave Barry, Erma Bombeck, and Lewis Grizzard rolled into one. Of course, this has mostly been said by Christee Gabour Atwood, so who can trust that? Atwood has, however, been at various points of her life a stand-up comic, disc jockey, television personality, humor columnist, Universal Studios tour guide, actress, association manager, corporate trainer, magazine publisher, and unemployed street urchin. And don't ask her about her rubber chicken fixation...
Three Feet Under: Journal of a Midlife Crisisby Christee Gabour Atwood
"Midlife it's a four-letter word...if you're a really bad speller. But it's also extremely funny if you look at it right...or if you sleep through as much of it as possible." from Journal of a Midlife Crisis. On January 1st, Christee Gabour Atwood, a forty-something author, comidienne, and animal lover resolved to write daily in her journal. And she
"Midlife it's a four-letter word...if you're a really bad speller. But it's also extremely funny if you look at it right...or if you sleep through as much of it as possible." from Journal of a Midlife Crisis. On January 1st, Christee Gabour Atwood, a forty-something author, comidienne, and animal lover resolved to write daily in her journal. And she kept her promise, faithfully recording her journey into something terrifying, something taboo: Midlife. Overcoming the indignity of being called "Ma'am" by a strapping college boy, smiling bravely through conversations with matrons aghast that she and her husband never particularly cared to have children ("I'm allergic," she tells one horrified dinner guest), and enduring the first appearance of wrinkles, Atwood hillariously comments on all the reasons to have a midlife crisis, and why to cherish every moment of a life well-lived. Witty, sharp, and unflinchingly honest, Journal of a Midlife Crisis is more clever than Dr. Laura, more fun than Dr. Phil, and more real than Bridget Jones.

This heart-warming and hilariously funny book is to die for! We're talking laugh out loud funny. Being 44 and in that altered state of mind, I really related and was so relieved to find something funny to laugh about in the midst of all my life's changes and challenges. Don't miss this book! Christee Atwood is one of those rare writers, like Irma Bombeck, who can charm your heart and soul while making you cry from laughing so hard. I hope she writes tons more.
