A Roller Coaster Ride of Emotions

by Mary DiZazzo Trumbull

A review of

Disabled FablesCopyright © 2008 Dan Montville.
ISBN 0-7414-4712-6

One minute you're crying and the next laughing out loud. If you grew up with a child in your home with disabilities you can clearly identify with these mini-tales of patience, compassion and unconditional love. Every parent should read this book.

The Montvilles are a brave and committed family. Dan portrays the most uncomfortable scenarios into a twist of dry humor.

A must-read. You'll look at your "normal" teen in a different light. Bravo, Dan.

A Toast Offered at the Robert Benchley Soc. Annual Awards Dinner

A TOAST [as offered by D. Trumbull at the Annual Humor Award Dinner of the Robert Benchley Society, Saturday, October 4, 2008, at the Harvard Club of New York].

I propose a toast to one of our fellow diners this evening, a member of this venerable club, by whose kind offer of sponsorship we are able to dine here this evening.

He is a man of many and varied, whose insightful and thoughtful command our sincere and heart-felt -- and he has brought with him his lovely and gracious and his delightful and charming: Ladies and gentlemen, the toast is JOSEPH HANDLIN!
