Author(s): Diana Joseph
An "Entertainment Weekly" "must"-"It's hard to recall another collection of essays, or a memoir, with more natural charm."
Surrounded by dysfunctional men-from her fourteen-year-old son to her high-maintenance boss-Diana Joseph did what she had to do: survive. "I'm Sorry You Feel That Way" is an honest, hilarious, and instantly recognizable memoir of a truly modern woman. Funny, fearless, and warmhearted, it is a portrait of a woman in all her endless complexities and contradictions, and of the people she has come to love in spite of-or rather because of-theirs.
aMs. Josephas sense of the apt detail, of the rapid-fire of human commerce, of the way the important gets hidden in the flippant, the hilarity of it all, the sadness, too, the sympathy she emits and provokes for the complexity of just livinga all that makes this book irresistible to me.a
aSomehow hard-boiled and warmhearted all at once, Josephas stories have an unflinching honesty and a wry appreciation for the absurdities of masculinity and motherhood.a
