Book Review: "Housebroken: Admissions of an Untidy Life" by Laurie Notaro

Following the election results, I found that I really needed something a little lighter than what I had been expecting to read.  Laurie Notaro has never really let me down in delivering some fun, light-hearted, and humorous essays.  The woman is hilarious.  And while I think some of the early laughs were wasted on me at the beginning, she did cheer me up a bit.

If you don't know Laurie, you should.  One of her essays was about her attempt to read the Magic of Tidying book, and I felt like she was channeling my frustrations and hesitations and presenting them an a much funnier light.

This book also talks a bit about her love of cooking, and how she learned from her Italian grandmother.  She even shares some of her favorite recipes - including how to make different cheeses.  They way she described making the cheese has me almost convinced that this is something I could do myself.  I don't know.  Maybe I'll try it.

In any event, if you are looking for a laugh - give this book a shot.  And I realized that I missed one of her books - so no I have to track that one down too!
