Om forfatteren

Known for her realistic, humorous books, Erma Harris Bombeck wrote about ordinary, everyday events and problems. As a dedicated mother, she used her experiences raising children as a rich and vital source of her material. Her sense of humor and her appreciation for life made her successful in vis mere print, radio, and TV. Bombeck was born in 1927. In 1949, she began her career as a reporter for the Journal Herald in Dayton, Ohio. From 1975 to 1986, Bombeck appeared as a biweekly commentator on the Good Morning America television show. Bombeck's book titles give an indication of her style of humor: A Marriage Made in Heaven, or Too Tired for an Affair; I Lost Everything in the Postnatal Depression; and If Life is a Bowl of Cherries, What Am I Doing in the Pits? Her book, When You Look Like Your Passport Photo, It's Time To Go Home was a bestseller. Bombeck was repeatedly named one of the 25 Most Influential Women in America by the World Almanac. Her books were frequently on nonfiction bestseller lists. Bombeck died after surgery in April 1996. She and her husband Bill Bombeck had been married for 47 years and had three children.

What Are You Reading February 21 2015? i What Are You Reading Now? (februar 2015)


Though there are many references in these books that are dated and may even be foreign to some readers, these books still contain a great deal of truth about being a working mother. There are some really hard-hitting truths and thoughts sprinkled in with the humor. In addition, these are books that -- at one time -- were bathroom reading because they could be read in small chunks over time. And for those of us that grew up during Bombeck's heyday, there is a great deal of nostalgia. I would definitely recommend these books.… (mere)

Kniha známé americké autorky Svátost manželství, s podtitulem Na milostné pletky už nemám sílu, nepojednává o manželství nešťastném, jak by se na první pohled mohlo zdát, nýbrž právě naopak. Autorka v ní s neodolatelným humorem líčí téměř pětačtyřicet let manželského života, jeho radosti a strasti, chvíle štěstí i konflikty, problémy s dětmi i se sexem, prostě všechno, co osud může nastražit do cesty obyčejným manželům.

I have fond memories of seeing this book on my mother's night stand and decided to revisit it. Not having kids of my own did not in any way detract from the classic humor and endearing quality of Ms. Bombeck's stories. As a matter of fact I think that should I ever be blessed/cursed with motherhood I might actually feel a little better prepared having read a little Erma. At the very least it helps me understand what my (and every other) mother goes through in a deeply personal and absolutely hilarious way. A must-read for every adult human.… (mere)

Always funny, always personal, mostly believable. Bombeck used her life to help us laugh at ours.
