Not particularly well-written, but it was interesting to read. I like knowing facts about her background and the contexts of her books. Now I think I'll read one of her actual books for my dose of Erma.

A biography of Erma. Read her other books if you want her humor.
I think I've read all of Erma Bombeck's books at one time or another. This book brought it all together. For instance, I didn't know that Phil Donahue and she were once neighbors. This book also reiterated for me the fact that true writers can't be stopped. Erma wrote from her earliest years as a child to almost the day she died. What a great guy Bill is too!
This book is interesting, but I think I would read some of her books first before reading her biography. I am a sucker for biographies, especially the ones on A&E. Good thing we don't have cable!
A really interesting and lovely account of one of our greatest humorists. I went away from this book thinking that I would have liked this lady personally. The author did a very fine job.

A interesting, if somewhat superficial, look a the life of one of my all-time favorite writers.
