Book Reviews: Humorous Nonfiction

Where You Go There They Are by Annabelle Gurwitch


Humorous Essays > Nonfiction

I love humorous essays, and this collection of tales of her weird/dysfunctional family doesn’t disappoint.

She has a colorful father who could spin a yarn and a mother who laments the life she doesn’t have to the one she settled on. Her mother “didn’t realize she was marrying into a family of bootleggers, gamblers, and fabulists.” She had children because she thought she had to, but “My mother has never made it a secret that she doesn’t really like children.”

The tales weave between Gurtwich’s childhood and how her family and upbringing impacted how she views things as an adult.

This is a fun book.

I received an advance copy of the book via Netgalley for an honest review.
