Not long ago it occurred to Carol Leifer that she had to stop telling one of her favorite stories - seeing The Beatles perform at Shea Stadium - because it dated her. But then she thought: what's that about? I see now that when you deny your age, you deny yourself, she says, and when you lie about your age, you become your inauthentic twin. But most importantly, when you lie about your age, they win. (And of course by 'they', I mean the terrorists).

In When You Lie About Your Age, the Terrorists Win, comedy veteran Leifer tells hilarious stories about herself in her own voice; her Long Island childhood; her late beloved father, the inveterate teller of dirty jokes (I see now that, as a child, a lot of looking up to your parents has to do with height); and her 88-year-old mother who is still a practicing psychologist. Along the way, she also takes shots at plastic surgery, class reunions, the techno craze, Chanukah, becoming a parent at midlife, and a host of other 21st century craziness.

    " I read the book....I know I did. But I don't remember much about it. That's how much it impressed me. I remember the author discovered that she was a lesbian, she had a cancer scare and she raised little tiny dogs. You don't need to read this book to experience any of that... just look out your living room window. "

    " Received a copy from my sister. It's a fun read, not a joke book but more a humorous autobiography. I learned a little Jewish terminology along the read. "

    " Kind of a rant, a funny one, but still a rant. "
