As we grow up, our moms are the lenses through which we see our lives-and even as adults, they anchor us and give us comfort. While our moms always offer us wisdom, when they get in their 90s, things get a little crazy-and sometimes downright hilarious.
At least, that's been true for Bonnie Lorber Habyan's 90-year-old mother Bess.
In The World According to Bess, Habyan has created a funny memoir that weaves her mother's wit, wisdom and warm-hearted sentiment into a tapestry of hilarity that has been fittingly described as a cross between Chicken Soup for the Soul and Sh*t My Dad Says.
By capturing Bess's many anecdotes and aphorisms, Habyan reflects warmly on a lifetime of wisdom from a one-of-a-kind woman and all the laugh-out-loud memories they've shared. The result is a quick and quirky roadmap to living an authentic life and becoming your "Bess-t" self.
Spanning topics of life, love and keeping up appearances, The World According to Bess is a feel-good book for women offering zany humor and uplifting guidance on how to keep life simple and meaningful-even if the world around us seems to be losing its mind.
