About the Book

“Chovancek (I Can Finally Hear Birds, 2013, etc.) covers territory similar to the turf once occupied by the late Erma Bombeck in this collection of humorous sketches…Chovancek has a strong, clear, and for the most part, appealing voice. She is a suburban Everywoman: Her troubles are our troubles, her peeves are our peeves. An enjoyable collection of observations on some of the less-than idyllic aspects of suburban family life.” – Kirkus Reviews Nancy takes us on a journey through her childhood years with an Italian/Polish upbringing, and continues through the triumphs and tribulations of her adulthood with sarcastic humor and grace. As we become immersed in Nancy’s true-life story telling, it becomes obvious that she has a knack for humor in the most unexpected, yet highly relatable moments that we all share in life. Nancy takes us on a humorous and touching journey in which all stories have a common thread: Life’s absurdities show us that we are not alone for this wild ride. Loving oneself for who you are and not what other’s want you to become is imperative. To quote William Shakespeare’s “Hamlet”, “This above all: To thine own self, be true.”
