Description

From the immensely popular author of The Gin & Tonic Gardener!
At about the time Martha Stewart began tutoring North America in the finer points of gracious living like how to properly trim and parboil the perfect asparagus spear or the seven steps to a really sensational custard, Janice Wells was beginning her own but decidedly less refined and less elegant struggle of rebuilding her life on a shoestring after her marriage of 20 years dissolved. The result: her enormously popular column Definitely Not Martha Stewart. As devoted fans of the long-running column attest, she writes about ordinary life and happenings with extraordinary humour.
From the realities of moving ("I finally found my martini glass, wrapped in swaddling underwear and lying in a roaster") to household tips ("To loosen a rusty bolt, soak a rag in Coke, wrap it around the bolt, add the rest to a couple of ounces of rum, drink slowly, then try the bolt") to candid confessions ("Thinking about how long its been since you cleaned the tub can take the joy right out of a bubble bath"), Wells tells it like it is in the real world of low budgets, busy schedules, and, frankly, little motivation to flute mushroom caps or make her own rag paper.
Full of down-to-earth observations and dry wit about day-to-day happenings, Definitely Not Martha Stewart will strike a chord with women everywhere, give them a laugh, and make them feel all right about not being domestic divas.
