Funny and Fabulous.... Jan Tuckwood, presentation editor, The Palm Beach Post
Casts the Golden Years as antic realism... Julie Gilbert, novelist, biographer, playwright, and teacher
With topics ranging from marital "bliss" to wearing stiletto heels at an age when one should know better, Susan blends just the right amount of the absurd into her daily life to keep her readers laughing and thinking. After all, where else can you find reality TV with a senior slant, or organic food shopping with a side of wry?
This sparkling collection will appeal to mothers and daughters alike, as well as the fathers and sons trying to figure out what the other side really thinks.
Susan Goldfein holds a doctorate in Communication Disorders from Teachers College, Columbia University, which, while affording her a successful career as a clinician, teacher, and consultant, has done absolutely nothing to prepare her for creating this book.
Nevertheless, she has plunged into a second career writing humorous essays about life with wit, wisdom, and a touch of irony.
Hailing originally from New York City, she currently lives in Florida with her husband and their two senior Yellow Labs, Bette and Davis.
Her essays have appeared in The Palm Beach Post, and have been featured on the Florida Arts Radio Network and the Kravis Center's Showcase The Writing. She is the author of the blog "1000 Things to Say Before I Die."
