But behind the scenes, beneath the booming laughter, award-winning journalist Martin Knelman in Laughing on the Outside paints a compassionate portrait of John Candy--a man blessed by comic genius and goodness of heart who was ultimately and sadly undermined by self-doubt and misguided ambition.

And then there was that time she tried to weigh her head in the grocery store produce scale ... Sharon's hilarious mishaps and uniquely worded observations reveal a screwball world that every reader will recognize at once. She takes the mundane and makes us laugh at her foibles and misadventures, which are our own as well, no matter who we are. SHARON MAY has been a humor columnist since 1998. She has been a middle-school, high-school and college English teacher for even more years, and did a two-year stint as managing editor of a weekly newspaper.
