Actress/comedienne/author Annabelle Gurwitch gained a loyal comedic following during her years hosting Dinner & A Movie on TBS. She has been a regular commentator on NPR and contributor to The Nation, More, Glamour, Marie Claire and a number of other national publications. Gurwitch is also the author of You Say Tomato, I Say Shut Up which is now a play receiving its third national tour, and Fired! which became an acclaimed documentary and Showtime Comedy Special.
Every 7.5 seconds, someone in America turns 50. While some people like to say that “50 is the new 40,” Annabelle Gurwitch believes “50 is still F-ing 50.” In her wickedly funny new collection of essays, I See You Made an Effort, Gurwitch explores the hazards of reaching the half-century mark, aging out of your wardrobe, outsourcing your endocrine system, and falling in lust at the Genius bar. From the woman the Washington Post calls “hilarious,” this new book is the ultimate coming-of-middle-age story.
