This book - the first from Mrs. Kolenovsky (hereafter referred to "Mrs. K.") - is a satirical, yet thought-provoking look at modern America and its woes. With a sarcastic tone and biting wit, the author covers twelve chapters on subjects such as - Personal Responsibility, Parenting, Intolerance, and Manners - to name a few. Mrs. Ks' viewpoint is that of middle-class America. She is a secretary for an oil company by profession and a humorist by design. Told by friends and family for years that she should be a stand-up comedienne, Mrs. K. has instead chosen to become a sit-down humorist.
Her life experience and the fact she can still laugh at the idiocies of society (not to mention herself) help her to give a unique and refreshingly honest approach to many of the troubles facing our great nation today. And she has solutions, too. Most of them are seemingly simplistic but if they were that easy, why haven't we fixed the problems? Maybe we need to look a little closer and be a little more honest about how we feel.
Mrs. K. can help. For comments or suggestions, you can contact Mrs. K by writing to her at firstname.lastname@example.org or by regular mail at Soapbox Queen, 11330 Huffmeister, PMB #472 Houston, Texas 77065. She'd love to hear from you.
Having lived in and around Houston, Texas for her entire life (40 years and counting) Mrs. K has traveled across most of the U.S. and, like one of her heroes, Will Rogers, has never met a stranger. In fact, she takes great pride in embarrassing her daughter in public by talking to people she's never even seen before. Her work appeals to a broad audience by tackling many subjects and being forthright about her takes on all of them. She became the "Soapbox Queen" when someone commented that there was not a soapbox to be found that she wouldn't have a rebuttal for. No issue is one-sided, except perhaps stupidity.
