This collection by Lois Podoshen answers life’s burning questions: “If you can’t whistle ‘Dixie’ and your spouse flunked clarinet, are viola lessons for your child really a good investment? “How can a middle-aged woman with a hatred of sweat and exercise get in touch with her inner Schwarzenegger?” “Is it possible for a woman to pee in a hole in the ground in France and still maintain her dignity?”

Trying on Bathing Suits & Other Horror Stories reflects on problems that happen to all of us. Did anything in the book make you say, “Yes, that happened to me”? Podoshen hates trying on bathing suits but loves to laugh, especially at herself.  

One reviewer said: "What we all should do is make sure... to beg her for more, read her next book, and get her on Oprah." Another praised her talents and considered it the "funniest writing since Art Buchwald and Erma Bombeck.

Podoshen also wrote four children’s books published by Richard C. Owen Publishers, Inc.: The Birthday Bird, The Artist, Paco’s Garden and Grandpa’s Candy Store
