In her signature self-deprecating and hilarious style, humor essayist Rose Madeline Mula gripes about growing old. Her inability to stick with New Year’s resolutions, the mystery of her clothes shrinking to a smaller size with each passing season, and her susceptibility to infomercials are just a few of the problems pestering Mula. In this collection of comical compositions, readers can skip around from one laugh-out-loud essay to the next while enjoying the author’s endless wit and charm.
The animated author recalls the days before cars came equipped with electric windows, when pin boys frequented bowling alleys, and songs were composed with lovely lyrics that the listener could understand. While written with a mature audience in mind, women of all ages will enjoy this relatable book.
