In her hilarious book of essays, Parks and Recreation star Retta shares the stories that led to her success in Hollywood. In So Close to Being the Sh*t, Y’all Don’t Even Know, Parks and Recreation star Retta takes us on her not-so-meteoric rise from roaches to riches (well, rich enough that she can buy $15,000 designer handbags yet scared enough to know she’s always a heartbeat away from ramen with American cheese). Throwing her hard-working Liberian parents for a loop, Retta abandons her plan to attend med school after graduating Duke University to move to Hollywood to star in her own sitcom—like her comedy heroes Lucille Ball and Roseanne. Say what? Word. Turns out Retta might actually be on to something. After winning Comedy Central’s stand-up competition, she should be ready for prime time—but a fear of success derails her biggest dream. Whether reminiscing about her days as a contract chemist at GlaxoSmithKline, telling “dirty” jokes to Mormons, feeling like the odd man out on Parks, fending off racist trolls on Twitter, flirting with Michael Fassbender, or expertly stalking the cast of "Hamilton," Retta’s unique voice and refreshing honesty will make you laugh, cry, and laugh so hard you’ll cry. Her eponymous sitcom might not have happened yet, but by the end of So Close to Being the Sh*t, you’ll be rooting for Retta to be the next one-named wonder to take over your television. And she just might inspire you to reach for the stars, too.

Landgrave Frederick II of Hesse Cassel signed a Treaty with King George III of England to provide a Jaeger Corps, to help fight the rebellious Colonials in North America. The trouble was no such unit existed. Andreas Wattenbach, a man of minor nobility with distinguished service in the Seven Year War and a respected Jaegermeister, had the unique qualifications needed to establish such units. However, he was happily married and expecting his first child. Then his wife and son died in childbirth and he no longer had reason not to comply with the Landgraves request. He threw himself into the task and soon found himself headed for North America on sea voyage which he feared worse than facing an enemy's cannon. He ended up in Canada with an independent command to test the concept of the new unit in the expected campaign from Canada down to New York City in the summer of 1777. He found himself a pawn in an environment where the senior English leadership was engaged in internecine bureaucratic fighting over responsibilities, prerogatives and recognition while the English rank and file considered their Tories allies as unreliable and unappreciative, their German allies as incompetent, their Indian allies as children and the Whigs rebels as cowards. The senior leadership didn't know what the Jeagers were or how they should be used. Andreas found himself working in the no man's land between the British and Rebel Armies where they couldn't tell which Indians were friend and which were enemies. The Indians couldn't tell which soldiers were friendly combatants which were deserters, or Rebel Soldiers. Neither could tell which colonials were friendly Tories or Whig rebels. In this environment a split second error in judgment could mean their own life or the death of an ally. Through all this Andreas tried reconcile his duty to God with his loyalty to his Prince and service to the British while maintaining his own integrity, filling his responsibility to his men and searching for his own ideals. The Campaign from the North started with a triumphant departure from St John of a splendid expeditionary army, confident that they would soon be celebrating victory and the end of the American rebellion in New York City while waiting for transportation home. They won an easy victory at Ticonderoga, but soon ran into an increasingly competent adversary and themselves started to disintegrate, until it was a starving, depleted and dispirited force that faced an overwhelming and confident rebel army at the battle of Bemis heights. Andreas lead the remnant of his Jaeger Company on a futile advance into the face of the rebel guns. By the end of the bravely fought battle the future of the United States and of Andreas had been decided.

Book Summary The story begins with the main character attending a 50 Year Class Reunion and then flashes back to her four years in high school. At that time she lived in a small southern California town where everyone knew everyone else, and there wasn't much for teenagers to do, and yet they manage to keep busy somehow. Life at that time (before the electronic age) went at a much slower pace, and people who grew up in the 50's and 60's were part of the last innocent generation. The book describes Elaine's relationship with her family, her life on a poultry ranch, and the closeness of a small community. It also describes many high school activities, classes, boy-girl relationships, and problems and heartaches, the euphoria and the sadness that are a part of life at that age. The story is based on an actual town and high school, and many incidents in the book actually happened the way that I described them. I did change the names of the town and the high school however. Back in those days it was much easier to work on your own car, the old hot rods and jalopies. Gas was thirty one cents a gallon, and one could buy a hamburger and Coke for less than fifty cents. But the monthly income for the average working family was only about $300, so the budget had to be stretched to make ends meet. A few women worked outside the home, but most did not. Many of the television sets were black and white, but color TV was on its way in. There was no reality TV at that time, but there were plenty of Westerns and family programming. Of course music played a huge part in the lives of young people, and it was the era of Rock and Roll. Elvis, Buddy Holly, and the Everly Brothers were household names. Dick Clark's American Bandstand was on TV in the afternoons, and everyone rushed home from school to watch the latest dances. There were only records at the time, 45's and 78's, which were played on phonographs. It would be years before cassettes, CD's, and iPods were invented. The music was portable though because everyone was getting transistor radios. If a group of kids got together at a lake or somewhere out in the middle of nowhere, they would just tune their car radios to the same station and turn up the volumne. I have tried throughout the book to portray life back in those days, with many details depicting the culture and fads of that time. I am hoping that this book will give today's teenagers a different perspective on life at that time, while giving my own generation a chance to walk down Memory Lane.
