9780061735035: Someone Will Be with You Shortly: Notes from a Perfectly Imperfect Life

“[Kogan’s] wry observations of everyday life will hearten you on your worst days, validate you on your best, and make you laugh any day at all.” — Martha Beck, author of Expecting Adam and Finding Your Own North Star

Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a delectable blend of wit, whimsy, pith, and poignancy. If David Sedaris were a girl... this is the book he’d write.” — Evan Handler, author of It's Only Temporary

Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a collection of the hilarious and poignant essays from beloved O Magazine columnist Lisa Kogan. Writing in the vein of Nora Ephron, Kogan has been called "the Erma Bombeck of our generation" (Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place and Lift). In Someone Will Be with You Shortly, she brings her trademark humor to such real-life quandaries as single motherhood, aging, and sex.

From the Back Cover:

Lisa Kogan is a forty-nine-year-old single mother who maintains that every human being deserves a great mattress, a comfortable pair of shoes, and a very smart shrink, and that no one has grown a decent tomato since 1963. She used to think the world wasn't all that complicated, but along came AIDS and crystal meth and the tankini, and she had to think again. Still, she's nostalgic for that time when you were forced to walk all the way across the room to change channels and there was no such thing as a spy satellite capable of spotting the precancerous mole on her left thigh.

Filled with self-deprecating humor and a deep appreciation for what really matters, Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a book for anyone who has ever been unnerved by pleather pants, lunch meat, or ambivalent men (not necessarily in that order), and believes that life is a fragile bit of luck in a world based on chance.

About the Author:

Lisa Kogan is the writer-at-large for O, The Oprah Magazine. She lives in New York City with her seven-year-old daughter.
