One would suppose that during the Depression there wasn't much to laugh about in America. But one would be wrong. This book takes up Betty's story before she'd had any success as a writer - when she went back to live with her mother. With a failed chicken farm and marriage behind her, Betty was desperate to make a living in a country without any jobs. Luckily she had her sister Mary batting for her, and catapulting Betty into one hilarious situation after another, while she watched safely from the sidelines.

This book, by the author of The Egg & I, is mostly about young people in Seattle during the depression. Written with humour and style, it is hugely entertaining. Not to be missed is the chapter titled 'Let Nothing You Dismay'.
I have not read her children's books but I highly recommend all of Betty MacDonald's adult books including The Plague & I and Onions in the Stew.
