Pressestimmen

"Take a heaping helping of Erma Bombeck, a handful of Lewis Grizzard, and a pinch of Mark Twain and what you have is . . . P. S. Wall."
--The Independent (AL)

"Wall is a force to be reckoned with. . . . There's something touching about her self-deprecating brand of humor, which doesn't threaten but invites one to commiserate--and laugh."
--Publishers Weekly

Der Verlag über das Buch

This woman loves life!
In quoting, reference KIRKUS REVIEWS: IF I WERE A MAN, I’D MARRY ME P.S. Wall Ballantine (240 pp.) Aug. 1999

The woman has a way with words and an attitude toward life that puts it all in proper, if delightfully skewed perspective. This is a collection of syndicated newspaper columns originally titled, “Off the Wall.” With her significant other, dubbed “Sweetie,” as her foil, Wall (My Love is Free . . . But the Rest of Me Don’t Come Cheap, not reviewed) delivers a pungent, acerbic commentary on love, mating, mothers, pets Harleys, and stuff as life is made of. One zinger follows another as Wall and her girlfriends – Maxine, Rosie and Leila, among others – follow their bliss through younger lovers (“I have jeans older than this boy”}, diets, divorce, buying a truck, kids (“I say we leave them in day care until they’re old enough to vote”), topless beaches, and home ownership (“I figure if God wanted a lawn, he’d mow it”), and even an evening in Paris. Born in Tennessee and raised in Alaska, Wall has the southerner’s warm gift for metaphor and a northerner’s cool aptitude for telling it like it is. On the other hand, there is a flair for the surreal that is uniquely her own. How many women have been sexually aroused by an overgrown goldfish? The cast of characters here include Mom (“wearing two-inch heels, pedal pushers, and a ruffled top”) and an assortment of cousins and aunts, Featuring Aunt May, whose life-size outdoor nativity scene is surpassed only by her fruitcake (“She doesn’t slice it; she pours it by the shot”). Brief and vivid vignettes of life as most people live it, tuned to epiphanize over coffee at the City Café.

Von Ein Kunde am 6. August 1999

I laughed so hard when I read her first book "My Love isCheap... " and now I'm laughing at her second one--and I'mstealing her lines, too! I was being waited on by a tiny salesgirl at the Gap, just like the one P.S. Wall described: "If this chick ate a grape, she'd look like a pregnant thermometer."
When this salesgal gave me a pair of pants that'd fit a flagpole better than me, I couldn't help it--Wall's other line from the same story just popped out of me: "Do I look like a boa constrictor to you?"!!!
Wall is just the funniest writer. I highly recommend this very funny lady's books.

Mrs. Wall makes me laugh over and over again. I bought her second book "If I were A Man ..." out of some sense of loyality and expecting the usual sequel rushed to the publisher. It just "ain't" so in this case. This book is from one who continues to improve as she perfects her craft. A cliche' perhaps but "practice (does) make (almost) perfect" certainly applies to this effort. I just have to hear Sweetie's side of the story! Unlike so many humor books these days ... this one truly delivers. Keep 'em comin' dear lady!

Von Ein Kunde am 12. Oktober 1999
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
I know she's laugh out loud funny, but there's a surreal, sexual and sometimes dark side to P.S. Wall. While our mother's taped Erma Bombeck to their fridge, we will tape Wall to the mirror. She reflects the women we are, the women we hope to become, and the dame every guy sees when he closes his eyes.
