Why im like this by cynthia kaplan best friend i never met

  1. 1. Why Im Like This by Cynthia Kaplan Best Friend I Never Met Cynthia Kaplan takes us on a hilarious and sometimes heartbreaking journey through her unique, uncensored world—her bungled romantic encounters and unsung theatrical experiences; her gadget-obsessed father, her pill-popping therapist, and her eccentric grandmothers; her fearless husband, whom she engages in an ongoing battle over which of them is the most popular person in their apartment; and, of course, her vengeful, power-hungry one-year-old son. Kaplans voice is a lot like the one in our heads—the one that most of us are only willing to listen to late at night . . . maybe while locked in a closet. What a relief it is that someone finally admits that she is afraid of nearly everything; that she is jealous even of people whose lives are on the verge of collapse; and that she has, at times, tried to pass for a gentile.
  2. 2. Personal Review: Why Im Like This by Cynthia Kaplan Many times during my reading of this book, I nodded in recognition and thought, "Me, too." Cynthia Kaplan is the best friend I never met. She articulates the sad and funny aspects of being female. Some of the essays are better than others, but she is honest even when being honest does not put her in the best light. She describes with great clarity her foibles and awkward actions: finding herself on the dangerous side of the river during a rafting excursion, waitressing, auditions, bad boyfriends, disloyal girlfriends, stubborn grandparents, and more. Her confidence in her own wit makes her human and likable. She knows on some level her experiences are only unique in that they are her's -- otherwise, she is all of us. Life is never ideal, but it can be pretty funny. For More 5 Star Customer Reviews and Lowest Price: Why Im Like This by Cynthia Kaplan 5 Star Customer Reviews and Lowest Price!
