text Ý Please Don't Eat the Daisies Ï Jean Kerr

A collection of humorous essays explores the challenges of being a housewife and mother While currently in the hospital as Kerr describes in the penultimate essay in this book I was looking for light reading emphasis on light My knowledge of Please Don't Eat the Daisies stemmed entirely from the film with Doris Day; my 4hinking was it just doesn't get lighter than that does it? What I find is a collection of essays from various magazines that Kerr wrote in the 1950's The Manhattanites schlep to the suburbs story is there all right in one chapter This book is funny from the introduction to the utterly useless and superfluous Index sadly omitted from this ebook edition The many pieces on child rearing in the suburban '50's do show their age but they aren't offered as childrearing primers and remain very funny Essays on writing Broadway producers and how to lunch them as well as some wicked send ups of Francoise Sagan as well as Stephen Vincent Benét's 'John Brown's Body' in which Mickey Spillane hogs the stage A bucolic writer I assume to be E B White is dealt with smartly Finally her essay on survival tips for a hospital visit had my bruised and battered body aching from laughter Do yourself s favor and read this book

Of course they are but do you think they'll admit it? A funny funny book
