    This original recording - his first - features Trillin at his most uproarious, reading from his own articles and books. Wonderfully funny and full of surprises, this is a thoroughly satisfying, eminently entertaining, and beautifully crafted collection.

    Debbie says: "Funny and well written"
    "Wonderful, warm, wry gem."
    Overall

    Nothing like an author who can laugh at himself,express such affection for his his wife and kids, and amusement at world at large.
    This charming collection will catch you off guard and have you laughing unexpectedly.

  • The Andy Cohen Diaries: A Deep Look at a Shallow Year

    Story

    In this dishy, detailed diary of one year in his life, Andy goes out on the town, drops names, hosts a ton of shows, becomes codependent with Real Housewives, makes trouble, calls his mom, drops some more names, and, while searching for love, finds it with a dog. We learn everything from which celebrity peed in her WWHL dressing room to which Housewives are causing trouble and how. Nothing is off limits - including dating.

    What would have made The Andy Cohen Diaries better?

    A bit of himself and real feelings.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andy Cohen again?

    Maybe, only because I enjoyed his first book.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Just like on his show when he started the whole, 'HAH, HA" thing, his tone becomes obnoxious and repetitive.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Andy Cohen Diaries?

    I would tell him to put in some genuine feelings along with the fluffy diary commentary.


    Any additional comments?

    Andy Cohen is smart enough to take the "rubber necker" in all of our natures and develop shows that we ,often guiltily, love to watch. I know he is smart, he has maintained friends for years so there must be some depth and he is an entertaining show host. I expected more from him!

    Story
    (989)

    Catherine has been enjoying the single life for long enough to know a good catch when she sees one. Gorgeous, charismatic, spontaneous – Lee seems almost too perfect to be true. And her friends clearly agree, as each in turn falls under his spell. But there is a darker side to Lee. His erratic, controlling and sometimes frightening behaviour means that Catherine is increasingly isolated. Driven into the darkest corner of her world, and trusting no one, she plans a meticulous escape.

  • The Truth About Cruise Ships: A Cruise Ship Officer Survives the Work, Adventure, Alcohol, and Sex of Ship Life

    A finalist in the Global eBook Awards, this is a behind-the-scenes look at cruise ships in a way that's never been done before. Some of the stories are shocking, some are enlightening, but most are just laugh-out-loud entertaining. Jay Herring was an American senior officer and one of the few who had physical access to the entire ship. Interviewed on TV by ABC, radio by NPR, and in print by USA Today, The Huffington Post, and Frommers, he worked with every department and every senior officer.

    Story

    I don't mind that I wasted a credit, if only I could get my time back.
    Poorly written, poorly read. More about his conquests than the cruises.
    A kiss and tell, where you get the feeling they did not care for his kissing, and I could have done without the telling.

    This sweet and funny tale of a preppy editor buying a Brooklyn deli with his Korean in-laws is about family, culture clash, and the quest for authentic experiences. It starts with a gift. When Ben Ryder Howe’s wife, the daughter of Korean immigrants, decides to repay her parents’ self-sacrifice by buying them a store, Howe, an editor at the rarefied Paris Review, agrees to go along.

    lesley says: "Absolutely delightful!"
    "Good story, horrible narration."

    Story

    Entertaining story but ruined by an annoying narrator who often "over acts".
    Korean characters sound Pakistani.
