Why Don't You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It? by Patricia Marx and Roz Chast

3.5 Stars

Celadon Books was kind enough to send me a review copy of this just in time for Mother’s Day. Now, if you know me, you know I’m an easy sell for books like this. My desk at home features a shrine selection for my former cats and dogs who made their way over the Rainbow Bridge and you’re all aware of my other hobby. Pretty much there’s a book for everything and I think these are great little bits of fun to give either solo or in addition to the ever-present “scented candle” . . . .

For the woman who pretty much already has everything but will publicly shame you for life if you forget to bring her a present (a/k/a your mother).

They also would make a great filler for those of you with questionable morals who have items like the following in your lives . . . .

Why Don’t You Write My Eulogy Now So I Can Correct It was exactly what it was supposed to be . . . .

But I’m telling you the Introduction was gold. Patricia Marx should write a full length comedic memoir if she hasn’t already done so.
