What do the lives of Lincoln, Helen Keller, Joan of Arc, and other historical figures have in common with Paula Poundstone? In the hands of this wryly observant and self-deprecating comedian, the answer is outrageously funny and unexpectedly touching. Poundstone compares her crazy life to theirs, as she holds forth on her children, her career, and the time in her life when it appeared she would lose them both. Now exonerated, Poundstone treats that stressful experience and the rest of her life successes and failures with remarkable wit and insight. THERE'S NOTHING IN THIS BOOK THAT I MEANT TO SAY is self-awareness and honesty at its most hilarious.
