Read Ben Steelman's complete review from the StarNews printed October 17, 2010

“Ann Ipock’s writing is at once hilarious, and in the next breath, poignant…”

Dorothea Benton Frank, N.Y. Times best-selling author of Lowcountry Summer


“From time-honored down-home Carolina collards-and-cornbread cooking revelations to shocking health and beauty enlightenment, Ann has unfurled another delightful caboodle of madcap wisdom and zany true adventures. Get ready for the unexpected—and don’t forget the Preparation H for under your eyes!”

Elizabeth Robertson Huntsinger Wolf, author of Georgetown Mysteries and Legends


“Life may be short but Ann Ipock has a funny bone a mile wide and ten acres tall. Yes, with the publication of Life is Short, I Wish I Was Taller, the subjects of male plumbing, Red Bird soft peppermint puffs, and the bed bag bugaboo receive the laughing attention they have long deserved.  A million thanks to you, Ann Ipock. No, make that a zillion and a half.”

William “Billy” Baldwin, author of Mrs. Whaley and Her Charleston Garden


“Ann Ipock has established a reputation for dishing about all that's holy and hilarious down South, and her new book, Life is Short, I Wish I Was Taller, carries on the tradition. From women’s cowlicks to men’s ‘BMS,’ it'll make you want to sit a spell right away. Get your copy today—and when your husband says, ‘Is that new?’ say, “’This old thing? Why, I’ve been reading Ann forever.’”

Jayne Jaudon Ferrer, author of She of the Rib: Women Unwrapped


“Reading Ann is like having a long lunch with your favorite cousin—the one with the best jokes and the juiciest secrets. She is hilarious, sharp as a tack, and never afraid to tell it like it is.”       

Ronda Rich, author of What Southern Women Know about Flirting


 “Ann Ipock has done it again—and her quirky, sassy, oh-so-Southern take on the hilarities of everyday life will keep you entertained from cover to cover.”
