Award-winning humorist Diana Estill is often compared with “the late, great Erma Bombeck,” but with an edgy 21st-century twist. We welcome with this take-no-prisoners collection of humor essays readers are calling “Laugh Out Loud Funny!”
Here’s the set-up for Stilettos No More:
In this collection of essays, award-winning humorist Diana Estill shares her wacky views on the years between mini-skirts and “Mee-maw” panties, tells the truth about “shapewear,” and offers advice on “how to talk so that your spouse will listen” and other mysteries. Lamenting she’s “put up with this thong enough,” Estill invokes her inner fashion critic as she tackles midlife with both eyes squinted.
Sometime around 50 you realize you’ve said goodbye to your youth and hello to world of body shapers, random hair growth and senior specials – whether you want them or not. You can spiral into a funk or you can laugh. Stilettos No More helps you laugh, and laugh and laugh! Diana Estill takes a humorous look at life from the top of the hill looking down. The age hill, that is.
Some humor collections have peaks and valleys. This book is a steady stream; each essay flowing into the next, each just as funny or funnier than the one before it. Extremely well-crafted. A snappy read, Stilettos No More is a collection of essays that makes you smile, and at the same time be comforted that you’re not alone in your quest for the nearest bathroom. You’ll definitely want to share with family and friends. Highly recommended.
