    Although this book reflects the year 1970 when it was written, and the years immediately preceding it when the essays included in the book were published in various magazines, it was a highly entertaining book Very funny Jean Kerr was a gifted writer.

    This is a collection of Jean Kerr s essays as they appeared in magazines of the sixties I got it out because I fondly remember the superlative article The Poet and the Peasants , about Kerr s efforts to introduce her five sons her one daughter was too young at the time to poetry and classical music The other articles are amusing, but mostly dated Kerr s upper middle class world of New York s bedroom communities with large families is probably long gone No one can afford both any Th This is a collection of Jean Kerr s essays as they appeared in magazines of the sixties I got it out because I fondly remember the superlative article The Poet and the Peasants , about Kerr s efforts to introduce her five sons her one daughter was too young at the time to poetry and classical music The other articles are amusing, but mostly dated Kerr s upper middle class world of New York s bedroom communities with large families is probably long gone No one can afford both any There are still some chuckles to be had though Kerr s struggles with her weight and finding clothes not designed for tens and under have alas, not gone out of style The Poet and the Peasants is a classic, though and makes this whole book worthwhile

    I love this book Every story is funny, especially I Just Stepped out of Vogue and The Poet and the Peasants the Introduction is great too I have read this many times and each time it just gets better Jean Kerr is the crown jewel of humorists Her work is a tad dated, but that can even add to the fun, as in As I Was Saying to a Geranium Just read it, even if you aren t a pre teen or post operative you ll get it when you read it
