At a time before Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram…Erma Bombeck commanded people’s attention like few others. With her humor column about the ups and downs of being a housewife and mother appearing as many as 3 X a week in more than 900 newspapers across the country…not to mention her best selling books…Bombeck, who died in 1996 became the smart, witty, down to earth voice of of the workaday lives lived by countless millions of women.
-John Stanton, Star News Online.
Those weekly columns that she wrote in her bedroom in 1964 went into national syndication the next year with 3 weekly columns under the title At Wit’s End. In 1967, her popular columns were compiled into book form and published as At Wit’s End. Radio shows followed, more best-selling books, and television such as Good Morning America. America just couldn’t get enough!
