Summary, etc.: "Pinterest. Foodies. Anne Frank's underwear. New York Times bestselling author Laurie Notaro ... spares nothing and no one, least of all herself, in this ... new collection of essays on rudeness. With the sardonic, self-deprecating wit that makes us all feel a little better about ourselves for identifying with her, Laurie explores her recent misadventures and explains why it's not her who is nuts, it's them (and okay, sometimes it's her too)"--Page 4 of cover.
