I admit it right now, I love me some Celia. As I always have said, she has the same observations on life that I do.... only she has the guts to actually say her thoughts out loud.
A humor columnist who sometimes turns thoughtful,once in a while downright serious but always, always interesting.
Her stories range from the State Science Fair, "There's some weird shit going on up in here." to the fact she can't seem to control her kids like Betty Draper does - with steely gaze, a slight whisper and martini glass in hand.
I read Celia's books and I laugh, snort, chuckle, snort more and occasionally giggle. All of this leads to highly suspicious looks from the rest of the family who are not used to Idgie being quite this festive in nature, but what can I say.......Celia drags it out of me.
I have her entire set of books and highly recommend you do the same.
*No money changed hands between Celia and myself for this review. :)
