When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win

Author: Carol Leifer
Stars: 4
Review by: Miss Lucy

Don’t judge this book by its cover, or, in this case, by its title – the book has nothing to do with terrorism.  It’s a memoir, made up of a collection of essays from a comedienne who has just turned 50. But it’s totally NOT depressing. This woman is funny!!!  She's learned things in life, from the practical ("Never complain about your age to someone older than you" (People do this to ME all the time!)) to the silly ("Tequila should always be sold with an instant camera attached to it so the next day you have some idea of what happened."). She also includes a chapter on advice to men ("If your girlfriend is quiet for a while, never ask her, 'What are you thinking?' I guarantee the answer won't be,'How attractive and unannoying you are' or 'The Mets are up seven to six.'")
I also really liked her chapter on how she ended up acquiring seven rescue dogs.
