Jean Kerr

Click on the image to read the Time Magazine article that accompanied this cover.

”I'm tired of all this nonsense about beauty being only skin-deep. That's deep enough. What do you want - an adorable pancreas?”

- Jean Kerr

I find Jean Kerr’s humor reassuring in the face of an overwhelming array of everyday tasks and the difficulties of life’s mundane but unavoidable obstacles. If you haven’t read Jean Kerr’s work, you should really do yourself a favor and get your hands on one of her books, like “Please Don’t Eat the Daisies” or “How I got to Be Perfect.” You can read more about her and her humor in this blog by Sheila O’Malley written about Jean Kerr after her death in 2003.
