Greetings from Casa Horowitz
What happens when a New York City actress attends an Ivy League business school, moves to L.A., joins corporate America, and gets married? She gives birth to two sons and “Brisket is a Rite of Passage,” the first of many humorous essays on life as a card-carrying neurotic Jewish-mother-lifelong-fag-hag-ex-actress-MBA raising two sons, one husband, 3 lizards, 2 cats and a dog all while working as a Vice President of Marketing. Occasionally, she poses as a soccer mom and tries not to get busted.
Part David Sedaris, part Erma Bombeck served with gefilte fish and a dollop of horse radish, Linda recounts her personal experiences as if she’s at open mic night at a comedy club working ‘clean.’ Her personality leaps off the page as she exposes her skewed and hilarious world view.
If you have children and pets, a technology-impaired elder parent, OR despite being Jewish, Italian, Indian, or French, are duty-bound to cook but loathe it, then these humorous short essays will surely resonate with you and give you a much-needed laugh.
