In witty slice-of-life vignettes and laugh-out-loud cultural riffs, Elizabeth Warner shares her divinely demented view of the world. Raised by a mild-mannered psychiatrist father and a slightly off-kilter mother, Warner opted out of the life that awaited the youth of WASP heaven (aka Philadelphia’s Main Line)–that is, to be “typically weaned, whelped, and privately schooled, whereupon you move on to the roost-and-spawn phase.” Yet no matter how far afield she ventures–to New York to become a master junk-mail marketer or to L.A. to do a little acting–Warner can’t help but feel that sometimes she’s getting nowhere fast on “some kind of Protestant monorail to doom.”Whether she’s spelling out the invisible word “help” on a guy’s shoulder blades during unfulfilling sex, getting out of jury duty by smearing herself with soy sauce, or convincing her mother that the words “career girl” are not her death knell, Warner proves that sometimes it doesn’t matter where you go in life–just as long as you’ve got a killer punch line.

Coming from a similar background, I could truly appreciate the author's message; her mother came across as slightly exaggerated, but recognizable enough. I will say that the financial aspect struck me as not-quite-adding-up (as it did the I.R.S. also!). Ms. Warner seems to alternately poormouth herself - there's one essay about taking a job solely because she didn't have enough money for the rent - and yet she brags about her bi-coastal real estate. Finances seemed to be no concern at all for her move to L.A.; the whole situation seemed to fall effortlessly into her lap with a great apartment and car waiting. That point aside, the book is very funny.

Rarely do I laugh out loud as I read a book on a crowded NYC subway. In fact, I thought only David Sedaris could make that happen, until Elizabeth Warner came on the scene. "Ditched" is about two worlds colliding: the last gasp of Main-Line Old-School traditionalism meets the reality of the modern urban world. But it's the way it's written that really sucked me in: "To my right two elfin girls in baby-doll tees and jeans so petite they appeared to be conducting a rape in progress...." and "... impossibly appealing men with that ruddy, Northeastern skin that wants to shout 'sun' and 'tropics' but really whispers 'gin.'" See? Funny!

Yes, I am an unabashed fan of Liz's writing. No one turns a phrase like Ms. Warner. Her writing has bite and wit and never fails to entertain me. I have this book and I have read some of the same stories numerous times. One day, everyone will be in her thrall. She is every bit as insightful and entertaining as the fabulous Mr. Sedaris. Yes, she's included in my book Fired! Tales of Canned, Canceled , Downsized and Dismissed and we are friends. I fell in love with her writing and sought her out. You should too.

I am buying this book for all of my friends because they are getting tired of me calling them to read excerpts aloud to them! Everyone can relate to these great stories about overbearing family, wacky friends, and a derailed love-life. Parts of the book keep popping into my head and making me laugh out loud. This is the funniest book I have read in years.
