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.
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.
