"[Kogan's] wry observations of everyday life will hearten you on your worst days, validate you on your best, and make you laugh any day at all." -- Martha Beck, author of Expecting Adam and Finding Your Own North Star

"Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a delectable blend of wit, whimsy, pith, and poignancy. If David Sedaris were a girl... this is the book he'd write." -- Evan Handler, author of It's Only Temporary

Someone Will Be with You Shortly is a collection of the hilarious and poignant essays from beloved O Magazine columnist Lisa Kogan. Writing in the vein of Nora Ephron, Kogan has been called "the Erma Bombeck of our generation" (Kelly Corrigan, author of The Middle Place and Lift). In Someone Will Be with You Shortly, she brings her trademark humor to such real-life quandaries as single motherhood, aging, and sex.

I saw that Lisa Kogan authored this book, and I remember her from the O magazine. I enjoy her articles, so I decided to make the commitment to read her book. This book did not dissappoint. It is broken up into short stories, and a quick read. I found it funny and find her to be quite endearing. Hope she comes out with another book.
