* I See You Made An Effort by Annabelle Gurwitch

It’s hard to be funny. I See You Made an Effort: Compliments, Indignities, and Survival Stories from the Edge of 50 tries to see the funny side of approaching 50, and some of the essays are funny, or rather more touching than funny, as when she describes the difficultly of finding acting jobs as a not-so-young woman, or the travails of being the mother of a middle-school boy (it will get better!) Still, a rather disappointing book overall.
