Welcome to the world of Gary Yordon-former politician, part-time television host, and accidental newspaper columnist. When Yordon's world began giving him stories too good not to immortalize, he sent one to a friend at a newspaper. Two years and seventy-five columns later, he had a rabidly loyal readership. Their persistent requests led to this collection.

There is nothing above Yordon's satire, including his lack of home repair skills, addiction to Steven Seagal movies, and kidney stone intolerance. (Okay, maybe Yordon is normal in that regard.) He admits to actively resisting the temptation to write excessively about his mother, who is "a living, breathing, Neil Simon play."

"My ninety-year-old mother is a fierce shopper. Put a parachute on sale and Mom's all over it because it's not about need, it's about price. She'd buy a show pony to get a free harness. She passed the shopping gene to me. If I hear the phrase 'as seen on TV,' I know I'm in trouble. At 3 a.m., the Leopard Print Cat Tunnel for $19.95 is too good to pass up. Now all I need is a cat."

Tender moments are tucked away in this book too, especially those related to Yordon's relationship with his profoundly challenged son, Zachary.

Editorial Reviews

"Warning: reading Gary Yordon's book could be hazardous to your health. You'll laugh until it hurts. Yordon's life slips and slides upon an endless layer of banana peels. In Driving the Road of Life with a Flat Tire, he delightfully chronicles his hits and misses in recognizable misadventures that illuminate the off-kilter existence shared by all of us . . ." -Martin Merzer, former senior writer, Miami Herald
