HOW TO COMPLAIN, Susan’s second volume of essays, should give her audience nothing to complain about. If you are expecting insightful, relatable, and snark-filled glimpses into the foibles of ordinary events, she does not disappoint. Following on the heels of her award-winning first book, How Old Am I in Dog Years?, she continues to find irony and humor in the everyday. Susan spares no punches as she tackles such topics as marriage, the indignities of aging, social norms, and Barry Manilow fan shaming. She candidly questions the need for electric toilet bowls, and why anyone would want to try an anti-wrinkle cream made from an artichoke. This fresh collection of essays will appeal to women across generations, as well as men brave enough to discover what really makes the other half tick.
