Women's Nonfiction/Humor/Memoir Author and humorist Susan Kelley has always had her finger on the pulse of the issues closest to women’s hearts. In the 1980s she wrote a bestselling send-up of rules for the “liberated” and feminist myths: Real Women Send Flowers. In the 1990s and 2000s, in a more serious vein, she wrote about relationships: Why Men Commit; Why Men Stray/Why Men Stay; and The Second Time Around: Everything You Need to Know to Make Your Remarriage Happy. Now Susan Kelley turns her attention to more personal matters: her own experiences balancing a career as a writer and relationship expert (including an appearance on Oprah); a trip to an AC/DC concert in Paris; living as an ex-pat in Florence, Italy; marriage to a well known painter; mother- and grandmotherhood; and the travails of aging in a youth-oriented culture. The result is I OPRAHED, a collection of loosely linked essays that feature her trademark hilarity and empathy.
