From bestselling author Julie Klam comes a lively and engaging exploration of celebrity: why celebrities fascinate us, what it means to be famous today, and why celebrities are so important.
From the beloved and bestselling memoirist comes a funny and affecting look at making the most of our friendships in an age of isolation. With her inimitable wit and disarming warmth, Julie Klam shares with us her experiences, advice, and insight in Friendkeeping, a candid, hilarious look at some of the most meaningful and enjoyable relationships in our lives: our friendships.
Julie Klam writes about dogs with a rollicking wit and a radiating warmth-as no other writer can. In her bestselling memoir You Had Me at Woof, she shared the secrets of happiness she learned as an occasionally frazzled but always devoted owner of Boston terriers. Now, with the same enchanting, pop culture-infused amalgam of humor and poignancy that reached the The New York Times and the Today show and won the hearts of readers across the country, she returns with more humorous insight into life with canine companions.
Julie Klam was thirty, single, working as a part-time clerk, and had resorted to consulting tarot cards as to when she would finally meet that special someone. But when he finally showed up, he wasn't exactly as she had pictured. Flat-faced, eyes askew, neutered, and irresistibly sweet: he was a Boston terrier named Otto. YOU HAD ME AT WOOF is the humorous and tender story of a woman who learned life's most valuable lessons from her dogs.
“Julie was not able to attend school yesterday as she was at Bloomingdales with me having quiche Lorraine and salad and trying to decide whether a Perry Ellis trench coat made me look more like Jane Fonda in Klute or Inspector Clouseau. Please excuse her absence.”
