That Reminds Me of a Funny Story
A Memoir, How-To, and Compendium of Yankee Humor
by Rebecca Rule
In her career as a yankee storyteller, Rebecca Rule has traveled throughout New England telling stories and gathering them. One story leads to another. At town halls, historical societies, churches, and senior centers, people have shared stories that connect them to this rocky old place we call home. They’ve shared stories of family, country living, adventures and misadventures, triumphs, and “what the heck just happened?”
This book is the capstone on a twenty-five year career; the best of the best of these stories are collected here. It is also a memoir of how she came to be a storyteller, why storytelling matters, and what she has learned about the craft in the hundreds of performances she has given.
It’s a book full of characters, insight, heart, and good humor. Careful where you read it because you will be laughing out loud!
