Please Don't Eat The Daisies Author:Jean Kerr "We are being very careful with our children. They'll never have to pay a psychiatrist twenty-five dollars an hour to find out we rejected them. We'll tell them why we rejected them. Because they're impossible, that's why." — If Jean Kerr can be that frank about her children, somebody's got to be frank about Jean Kerr. And, frankly, she's a very ... more »funy woman. Her attitude about Spock, Gesell, and the rest is: if you can't join them, lick them. Her defeats (and an occasional triumph) are hilariously recorded here in her accounts of life with one husband, four boys, and a 32-bell carillon.
Mrs. Kerr gets out a lot too (with all those children, she has to). Going outside, she gives the inside on attending first nights with her drama-critic husband, lunching with producers, and how to have an operation.
And that's not sll. For Jean Kerr is a star at the not too gentle art of parody. Read "Don Brown's Body" and the already famous "Toujours Tristesse," and you'll see what we mean.
PLEASE DON'T EAT THE DAISIES is a laugh-out-loud, can't-put-down, just-let-me-read-you-this-one comedy sensation of the season.« less
