Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End
About Erma Bombeck: At Wit's End
A celebration of humorist Erma Bombeck, "At Wit’s End" rejoices in the life of a woman considered to be one of America’s funniest moms, who championed the everyday lives of housewives with a daring truth few of her generation were willing to tell.
Born in 1927, Bombeck is ranked among the great humorists of the 1900s, including Garrison Keillor, Will Rogers, Fran Lebowitz, David Sedaris, and Bombeck’s longtime friend and fellow columnist Art Buchwald. She started her column in 1964, published her first book in 1976, and continued writing until just before her death in 1996. Her bestsellers include "The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank," "If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits?," "Motherhood: The Second Oldest Profession," "At Wit’s End," and "Family – The Ties that Bind...and Gag!"
