When you lie about your age, the terrorists win

lieaboutageComedian Carol Leifer shares wise and witty lessons about life in her autobiographical new book, When you Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win: Reflections on Looking in the Mirror.

Leifer talks about everything from sweet, loving memories of her father and growing old gracefully, to an obsession with dog adoption and a mid-life surprise team switch to lesbianism.

If you’re Jewish or have Jewish relatives, (particularly with roots in New York), you’ll especially appreciate some of the humor that seems to be part of our blood.

Leifer comes across as the real deal – a genuine person who has come to fully appreciate everything in life and is generous enough to pass on her wisdom.

    Sounds hilarious, and she has a great tush.

    @Donald – I agree!

    @Humincat – I know! I wondered if that was her on the cover specifically because I was thinking “What a great tush!”… except I didn’t use the word “tush” in my head. Naughty inner voice, tsk tsk. LOL.
