“Nobody Will Tell You This But Me” by Bess Kalb

A granddaughter’s memoir/tribute to her grandmother.

Just about the sweetest and most heartfelt book, I’ve read in a while – and I read a TON of memoir-ish books.

The thing is, it’s not really a memoir as much as a tribute.

Bess Kalb is an Emmy-nominated television writer and she uses emails, voicemails, texts that she masterfully puts together to recount her grandmother’s story and their special relationship.

Kalb’s grandmother Bobby Bell was a definite FORCE in the family and Bess expertly crafts a tough-but-tender picture.

“Bessie, if you ever finally find a lipstick that actually, certifiably looks good on you, buy twenty of them. If it gets discontinued – and it always does – you’ll never forgive yourself. Ever. Don’t say I didn’t warn you.”

This book would make an excellent gift, especially to those who appreciate the bond between a grandmother and granddaughter.

Happy Reading!
