From the back cover:
Graham Greene and Patrick Dennis made their aunts famous. Dorothy from The Wizard of Oz did, too. Although nineteenth-century images frequently make being an aunt seem old-fashioned, Shirley MacLaine, Wendy Wasserstein, and Rosie O'Donnell do just the opposite.
This book celebrates aunts - rich, poor, beloved, intimidating, close, distant, young, old, hip, conservative, bun-wearing or banner-carrying, comfy or chic. The author offers advice on everything from "auntproofing" to conversing with a newborn; profiles an "auntcestor" and even tackles the mystery of the correct pronunciation of aunt; and strongly advocates the creation of a national "Aunt's Day."
This funny, affectionate look at aunts is designed to strike a chord with those who will find in its pages reasons to laugh, to remember, and to recognize a moment with that special woman in their lives.

I bought this book for my dear Aunt and a very special person to me...more like my mother than my own mother. When she passed away 1 year ago, the book came back to me. I hope to share with someone who has an aunt as special as mine was.
