THE UNLEAVENED TRUTH
The Unleavened Truth is a collection of 18 essays about life, love, laughter, and alliteration. The stories are about growing up, growing old, growing fat, falling in love, trying to fall in love and getting booted out of love. What distinguishes this book from others about the same topics is the engaging and, yes, very funny, pun-fiilled and pithy way in which it is written. They essays reveal angst-filled lessons about life that you can relate to and make you laugh.
My essays are so personal that I had to create a literary genre called “notaubiography” to protect my privacy. Notaubiography wavers between complete honesty and almost honesty, allowing me the leeway to maintain my privacy and avoid lawsuits. The emotions, neuroses and situations are real, while names, times, places and other noun-like words “ain’t necessarily so.”
People call me a witticist, but it feels so unwitful to admitful. If you smiled when you read this, or If your book club is like mine and is as much about the book as the wine served, the unleavened truth is that you’re going to want this author of The Unleavened Truth to be a guest at the next meeting of your book club.
A book by Nora Ephron, may she rest in peace, and my book came out on the same day. I say this, because I have been compared to her and found it flattering. I also have been called the Jewish David Sedaris. Does it matter that my BFF was the one to say it?
