For 10 years, from 1998 to 2008, Nita Micossi wrote a monthly essay for a local publication. In this body of work, Nita lampooned her own life, politics, and the melodrama of her community through her unique perspective. You won't be able to read a single essay without being touched by her wit and wisdom, educated by her relentless fact-checking, and taken by the effortless prose that only painstaking re-writing could produce. You won't find a single trite, corny or hackneyed phrase on these pages. Her talents were legend; her exploits prodigious. A PhD from Berkeley led her into teaching college courses in Sociology to prisoners at a maximum security prison, but at one time or another she was a professional cabaret singer, journalist, friend, daughter, sister, wife, mother...and always...always...a humor columnist. It's hard to know which she loved more: the teaching or the humor writing. At the end she had both. Nita passed away in December 2008, but through this book, her humanity and compassion, insight and warmth, love and levity live on. Enjoy
