My dear uncle in Washington D.C., whose birthday is today, just forwarded this email from a friend of his. What pleasure to think of a reader laughing out loud. My day is made.

On one of our snowy weeks I read Beth’s “All My Loving.” It was fabulous! I haven’t laughed out loud like that while reading a book in years. Thanks again for sending it to me. I’m starting on her memoir book this week as I’m taking a memoir writing workshop at the end of the month with two of the big names in non-fiction/personal essay/memoir writing.
