This is the sweetest book I've EVER read. It's truly a love story, as only the wise cracking, Jerry Orbach (Law & Order) could write! His life-long love affair with wife, broadway actress, Elanine Orbach, takes my breath away! We should all be as lucky as Mrs. Orbach! The book was written as a tribute to Jerry, after his passing, and is filled with little poems he left for his wife throughout the years. These are very Jerry poems, written with the one liner charm we all came to love his character for, on Law & Order. Perhaps the best part about this book is the rare glimpse into his life, love, and early career on Broadway. He was amazing as Lenny Briscoe, and as Doctor Houseman, on "Dirty Dancing", but those parts didn't showcase his true talent for singing and dancing! And perhaps more important, they didn't allow his fans the chance to see him play his most successful and important role, loving and devoted husband to Elaine Orbach.

I loved this book. It's a very quick read. This is the story of Jerry and Elaine Orbach's love, to put it simply. There's a bit of each of their history in here, but mostly this is an illustration of the kind of marriage we would all love to have. Jerry wrote Elaine poems on the back of a cat a day calendar for years, and she saved them all. In this book, you get to read some of those poems. SO wonderful and inspiring to see what love could and should be!

When I started reading this book, I thought it might be too "corny" for my taste, but it didn't take long to see this was a remarkable marriage that was never taken for granted by either spouse. I thoroughly enjoyed the poems written by Jerry. They had a refreshing honesty that was delightful. To find out at the end that his wife had recently died I actually felt grief. What a gift they both left us. It is possible to truly appreciate and care for those we love in small but significant ways. Read this book and you will be gently reminded of this truth.

This is a combination memoir and poetry book as Elaine Orbach tells the audience about her marriage to the late actor Jerry Orbach, starting with how they met in the first half of the biography. That section is interesting but nothing extraordinary. The latter half of the book consists of short poems that for the most part are lighthearted ditties that the late actor scribbled on a cat calendar before a shooting. His wife Elaine would read and enjoy them before tossing them into a tureen. At his funeral several were read in loving memory and eventually led to the book. Is this great literature? No as some of the entries are inane, others poorly written and few complex beyond simple rhyming. Yet the poems are inspiring and enjoyable. Readers will who appreciated Law and Order will relish seeing another side of the actor; his love for his beloved Elaine as the couple reminds us how important it is to tell your loved ones you care while they still can appreciate the mental hugs.
