- Kogan's] wry observations of everyday life will hearten you on your worst days, validate you on your best, and make you laugh any day at all.- -- Martha Beck, author of Expecting Adam and Finding Your Own North Star

Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a collection of the hilarious and poignant essays from beloved O Magazine columnist Lisa Kogan. Writing in the vein of Nora Ephron, Kogan has been called -the Erma Bombeck of our generation- (Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place and Lift). In Someone Will Be with You Shortly, she brings her trademark humor to such real-life quandaries as single motherhood, aging, and sex.
