In this side-splitting memoir, the former Saturday Night Live star recounts the hilarious adventures and unexpected joy of dating and becoming a mother when she least expected it - at the age of 44. Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as ´´Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians.´´ Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog-sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose? Resigned to childlessness but still hoping for romance, Dratch was out for drinks with a friend when she met John. Handsome and funny, after only six months of dating long-distance, he became the inadvertent father of her wholly unplanned, undreamed-of child and moved to New York to be a dad. With riotous humor, Dratch recounts breaking the news to her bewildered parents, the awe of her single friends, and the awkwardness of a baby-care class where the instructor kept tossing out the f-word. Filled with great behind-the-scenes anecdotes from Dratch´s time on SNL, Girl Walks into a Bar is a refreshing version of the ´´happily ever after´´ story that proves female comics - like best sellers Tina Fey and Chelsea Handler - are truly having their moment. 1.

Jason is single and has been for all of his 32 years. It´s depressing. But not as depressing as being told by his mother that he looks like Humpty Dumpty - after the accident. With a face that not even his own mother can love, it´s hardly surprising that he´ll try anything to get a woman to go out with him, even if it´s only for a single date. With little interest in anything other than his quest for a woman and a nice bit of cod and chips, Jason needs to think outside the box if he´s going to find someone who´ll give him a chance. Along with Barry - his best mate - Jason comes up with the only thing he thinks will work: dating a blind woman. However, to do that, he needs to pretend he´s blind himself, which is a lot harder than you might think…especially when guide dogs are so hard to come by. Eventually Jason´s efforts pay off and he meets Emma, a pretty professional with a host of friends. When he takes her out, they instantly hit it off. But will Jason be able to fool both Emma and her best friend Jerry into thinking he´s blind? With everything to play for, Jason faces the biggest challenge of his life, and nobody - especially not him - can see how it´ll all turn out. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Chris Dabbs.

Now several years post-divorce, relationship expert and humorist Mark Miller has experienced more than 500 first dates. In 500 Dates, composed of 55 humor essays, Miller features the highlights and lowlights of those dates. Among the true dating tales and revelations you will find in this audiobook are: How Miller and his date learned the limitations of a man being too emotionally expressive. (´´Most guys consider revealing more about themselves emotionally and communicating on a deeper level nearly as enjoyable as falling face-first onto an ice pickor spending the rest of eternity listening to Celine Dion music.´´) Miller´s realization that sometimes men have to pay a heavy price for their dates´ previous relationship behavior. (´´At least six different times, God has matched me up with a woman who has had a long history of wild, impulsive, passionate, no-holds-barred sex. She invariably finds something lacking in that lifestyle and decides to make a change. Starting with the very next man she dates. Who is invariably me.´´) Miller´s misguided social experiment to separate dating from status by spending less than $20 on the date, purchasing everything at a 99 store, and what he learned, as a result, about his date and himself. (´´I realize now that on the journey of romance, thrift and creativity will take you only so far - for the rest of the trip, you´ll need MasterCard.´´) Revealed for the first time the inner workings of a man´s brain. (´´Cerebellum. Responsible for coordinating movement and maintaining balance. Used primarily when a man has had eight beers and is endeavoring to make his way to the bathroom without tripping over the dog and pulling the fish tank over on top of them.´´) How Miller took his date to his ex-wife´s holiday party only to find his date and his ex-wife bonding like high school girlfriends. And more. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tom Parks. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adbl/021074de/bk_rhde_002536_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Claire and Jim were friends, lovers, and sometimes enemies for 27 years. In order to get health insurance, they finally married, calling their anniversary the ´´It Means Absolutely Nothing´´ day. Then Jim was diagnosed with cancer. With ever-decreasing odds of survival, punctuated by arcs of false hope, Jim´s deteriorating health altered their well-established independence as they became caregiver and patient, sharing intimacy as close as their own breaths. A year and a half into their marriage, Jim died from lung/brain cancer. Sustained by good dogs and gardening through the two years of madness that followed, Claire soldiered through home repairs, career disaster, genealogy quests, and ´´dating for seniors´´ trying to build a better life on the debris of her old one. Leave the Dogs at Home maps and plays with the stages of grief. Delightfully confessional, it challenges persistent, yet outdated, societal norms about relationships, and finds relief in whimsy, pop culture, and renewed spirituality. 1. Language: English.
