A hilarious collection of stories from the life of the New York Times bestselling author of Look Again At last, together in one collection, are Lisa Scottoline’s wildly popular Philadelphia Inquirer columns. In her column, Lisa lets her hair down, roots and all, to show the humorous side of life from a woman’s perspective. The Sunday column debuted in 2007 and on the day it started, Lisa wrote, “I write novels, so I usually have 100,000 words to tell a story. In a column there’s only 700 words. I can barely say hello in 700 words. I’m Italian.” The column gained momentum and popularity. Word of mouth spread, and readers demanded a collection. Why My Third Husband Will Be a Dog is that collection. Seventy vignettes. Vintage Scottoline. In this collection, you’ll laugh about: • Being caught braless in the emergency room • Betty and Veronica’s Life Lessons for Girls • A man’s most important body part • Interrupting as an art form • A religion men and women can worship • Real estate ads as porn • Spanx are public enemy number one • And so much more about life, love, family, pets, and the pursuit of jeans that actually fit!

I couldn't believe how much fun I had listening to her. She was funny and she ...
I have to be honest. I am not a fan of Lisa Scottoline's non-fiction work, yet enjoy her fiction. I thought this book was somewhat non-sensical and I just had a really difficult time continuing to read it.
This book was absolutely perfect for the situation I found myself in. Sitting in a hospital bed with an IV stuck in my wrist, with the TV at a terrible angle to be able to see anything, and an extra hour to kill before I had to go in for a procedure, I needed a book that was light, and kind of funny...
This is a collection of very short (3 pages or so) pieces from Scottoline's "Chick Wit" column for The Philadelphia Inquirer. Fun to have around and pick up when you have a few minutes to read here and there. She covers everything from shopping for undies to losing her father to cancer. As with a...
This book has been very entertaining, but a bit all over the place, until I realized or read somewhere (it may be in the prologue) that each chapter is actually from the author's weekly newspaper column. That makes more sense. Lisa Scottoline writes a column in a Philidelphia newspaper. Each chap...
