Cynthia Kaplan, acclaimed author of Why I'm Like This, once again casts her gimlet eye upon the current state of her affairs. Also of your affairs, and some other people's affairs as well. Journey with her as she humiliates herself in a variety of locales and fearlessly takes on all the important issues of the day—including her family, intelligent design, Narnia, and New England's deer population.

Leave the Building Quickly is a hilarious, moving, bitingly honest, take-no-prisoners incursion into the kind of real-life daily circumstances that inspire us to crouch in the linen closet at three in the morning. But that's okay because Kaplan's there, too. And she's brought snacks.

Makes for perfect summer reading."--Tucson Citizen "Wise, poignant and often hilarious. Kaplan serves perfectly mixed narratives that are one part melancholy, two parts wry."--Booklist "Hilarious...Personal and universal at the same time."--A.J. Jacobs, author of The Year of Living Biblically "Funny, sweet, poignant. Will alternately make you laugh and hit you with a surprisingly strong emotional punch."--Cleveland Jewish News Wise, poignant and often hilarious.
