ERMA BOMBECK
Signed quotation about dieting, from her column "At Wit's End", penned on a First Day Cover
Autograph Quotation signed: "'I have dieted so long, I/should be hanging from a/charm bracelet.' /'At Wit's End'/Erma Bombeck", 6½x3½. FDC honoring the Lily, postmarked Cincinnati, Ohio, April 28, 1994, 29-cent stamp affixed, FIRST DAY OF ISSUE. Dubbed "the Socrates of the Ironing Board" by "Life" magazine, Erma Bombeck (1927-1996), born Erma Louise Fiste, poked fun at everyday life in suburbia in her column, "At Wit's End", for over 30 years (beginning in 1965). Her gentle, self-deprecating humor eventually appeared twice a week in over 600 newspapers, and Bombeck delighted readers with several humorous books, including The Grass is Always Greener Over the Septic Tank (1976) and If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries, What am I Doing in the Pits? (1978). Bombeck was also a correspondent on Good Morning America from 1975-1986 and created and produced the television series, Maggie (1991-1992). Bombeck, who once said "I spend 90% of my time living the scripts and 10% writing them", died in 1996 at the age of 69. Although she survived a mastectomy in 1992, Bombeck had been diagnosed with adult polycystic kidney disease in 1991 (she didn't go public with her condition until 1993). After years on a transplant waiting list, she finally received a kidney transplant in 1996, but died from complications from the operation. The proceeds of her book, I Want to Grow Up, I Want to Grow Hair, I Want to Go to Boise, were donated to cancer research. Bombeck had been married to William Bombeck since 1949 and had three children. Corners minimally worn. Unknown residue on verso. Otherwise, fine condition.
