Forever Erma Book Excerpt:

New York Times Bestseller: This anthology of Erma Bombeck’s most memorable and humorous essays is a tribute to one of America’s sharpest wits. When she began writing her regular newspaper column in 1965, Erma Bombeck’s goal was to make housewives laugh. Thirty years later, she had published more than four thousand columns, and earned countless laughs—from housewives, presidents, and everyone in between. With grace, good humor, and razor-sharp prose, she gently skewered every aspect of the American family. This collection holds the best of her columns—not just her famous quips, but also the heartbreaking observations that gave her writing such weight. In 1969, Erma wrote: “screaming kids, unpaid bills, green leftovers, husbands behind newspapers, basketballs in the bathroom. They’re real . . . they’re warm . . . they’re the only bit of normalcy left in this cockeyed world, and I’m going to cling to it like life itself.” With what Publishers Weekly calls her “infectious sense of human absurdity,” Erma Bombeck’s writing remains a timeless examination of the still-cockeyed world. This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author’s estate.

Merry Wives and Others Book Excerpt:

In many ways, the history of domestic humor writing is also a history of domestic life in the twentieth century. For many years, domestic humor was written primarily by females; significant contributions from male writers began as times and family structures changed. It remains timeless because of its basis on the relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, houses and inhabitants, pets and their owners, chores and their doers, and neighbors. This work is a historical and literary survey of humorists who wrote about home. It begins with a chapter on the social context of and attitudes toward traditional domestic roles and housewives. The following chapters, beginning with the 1920s and continuing through today, cover the different time periods and the foremost American domestic humorists, and the humor written by surrogate parents, grown children about their childhood families, husbands, and Canadian and English writers. Also covered are the differences among various writers toward traditional domestic roles--some, like Erma Bombeck and Judith Viorst, embraced them, while others, like Caryl Kristenson and Marilyn Kentz, resisted them. Common themes, such as the isolation and competitiveness of housework, home as an idealized metaphysical goal and ongoing physical challenge, and the urban, suburban, and rural life, are also explored.

Skirting Traditions Arizona Women Writers and Journalists 1912 2012 Book Excerpt:

Women who skirt traditions, whether on the frontier of a young state or in a male-dominated profession, have relied on resilience, creativity, and grit to survive…and to flourish. These short biographies of twenty-eight female writers and journalists from Arizona span the one hundred years since Arizona became the forty-eighth state in the Union. They capture the emotions, the monumental and often overlooked events, and the pioneering spirit of women whose lives are now part of Arizona history. The remarkable women profiled in this anthology made the trek to Arizona from the big cities of Chicago, Los Angeles, and Washington, D.C.; from the green hills of Wisconsin, and from backwater towns in Oklahoma and Pennsylvania; by covered wagon, automobile, and, later, airplane. They came with their parents or their husbands, or as single women, with and without children. They came seeking health in the sun-blessed dryness of the desert, a job, a better lifestyle. What these women had in common was their love of writing and journalism, and their ability to use the written word to earn a living, to argue a cause, and to promote the virtues, beauty, history, and people of the Southwest. The narratives in Skirting Traditions move forward from the beginning of statehood to the modern day, describing daring feats, patriotic actions, and amazing accomplishments. They are women you won't soon forget.

Profiles of Ohio Women 1803 2003 Book Excerpt:

The State Of Ohio has produced an impressive number of remarkable women, women who have moved to the forefront of their professions or have enriched their communities or have made a difference in myriad ways. Among the more recognizable names are Toni Morrison, Annie Oakley, Halle Berry, Maya Lin, and Judith Resnick, but there are others as well, less recognizable, perhaps - Florence Ellinwood Allen, Hallie Quinn Brown, and Mary Jobe Akeley - who have made unique and important contributions to our culture. Although women constitute at least half of the population, they are still largely overlooked or underrepresented in documented history. Two Hundred Women from Ohio makes a substantial step in providing a record of women's achievement. Developed by the Ohio Bicentennial Commission's Advisory Council on Women, this collection profiles a few of the many women who have left their imprint on the state, nation, world, and even outer space. It celebrates and documents the achievements of two hundred women of many races, religions, and regions, who have broken barriers and records, been firsts, and started movements and institutions. They are leaders and role models who will inspire al
