CAN’T REMEMBER SH*T SHELLEY KLEIN
Have you ever reached the top of the stairs, only to realize that you can’t remember why you came upstairs in the first place? Have you recently found something that you put down and could not find yesterday, but not the thing that you put down somewhere just now that you’re actually trying to find? Do you sometimes discover that your car has mysteriously parked itself on the other side of the road?
Like many of us—some say it’s everyone over the age of thirty—you are now entering the era when you can’t remember sh*t. Sometimes these interludes are private, but all too often they are very public. Fear not—help is near! Can’t Remember Sh*t is a riotously funny collection of hints, tips, anecdotes, and advice, all drawn from the experiences of everyone from actors to athletes, politicians to poets, composers to comedians. This is an absolutely essential book for anyone interested in . . . uh . . . whatever.
Shelley Klein’s books include The Wicked Wit of Charles Dickens; Shufflebeam, Brokwa , and Sturt: The Origins of Surnames; and several others. She lives in England.
