Praise for Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault

One of O Magazine‘s “25 2019 Books We Can’t Wait For” 

“The creator of the iconic cartoon “Cathy” comes out of retirement to make us laugh, cry, and remind us—with humor and pathos—that yes, we all do stupid things yet live to tell the tale.”—O, The Oprah Magazine

“Struggling with the indignities of aging and the stress of caring for both a teenage daughter and elderly parents, Cathy cartoonist Guisewite finds an outlet for her frustrations in this amusing debut essay collection….Women who can relate to her experiences and concerns will enjoy her girlfriendish voice and appreciate the more substantive material.”—Publishers Weekly 

“Cathy Guisewite must have discovered early that laughter is the only free emotion—the only one that cannot be compelled—because she gave us the gift of freedom in her ‘Cathy’ comic strip. Now, in Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault, she has written a book that will help us free our lives to the very end.”—Gloria Steinem 

“Cathy was always the comic-book character who summed up what we were thinking, whether it was about calories, clothing, bosses, stress, or that extra cinnamon bun. Freed from the brevity of a single frame, creator Cathy Guisewite lets her signature voice and humor fly with Fifty Things That Aren’t My Fault, and tackles the subjects of parenting, caregiving, aging, food, and so much more. Aack! It’s fabulous.”—Lee Woodruff, author of Perfectly Imperfect 

“Cathy Guisewite lets us know that it’s okay to be a woman who’s half Betty Crocker and half Betty Friedan. It’s okay to listen to your mother. It’s okay to miss the legs you used to hate. Nobody’s perfect, but imperfect people tell the best stories. Women are resilient. And everybody says ‘AACK!'”—Helen Ellis, author of American Housewife

“There is humor; there is comedy; there is Cathy, who gives us laughter but reaches way beyond the funny bone to touch us with her humane, entertaining, and satisfying collection. Cathy Guisewite is one of those personalities who bubble up from the page, then reach out to become our friend, fellow sufferer, and favorite observer of just about everything. Add her to your life.” —George Hodgman, author of Bettyville

“Cathy Guisewite, a bona fide hero for so many of us as we came of age, has delivered a one-two hilarious punch with her book—intimate, powerful, funny, emotional, real, and riveting. Cathy bares her soul and proves once again that happily, truly, we are all in this together.”—Beth Grant, actress (The Mindy Project, Little Miss Sunshine
