" The Plague and I" recounts MacDonald's experiences in a Seattle sanitarium, where the author spent almost a year (1938-39) battling tuberculosis. The White Plague was no laughing matter, but MacDonald nonetheless makes a sprightly tale of her brush with something deadly.
"Anybody Can Do Anything" is a high-spirited, hilarious celebration of how "the warmth and loyalty and laughter of a big family" brightened their weathering of the Great Depression.
In "Onions in the Stew", MacDonald is in unbuttonedly frolicsome form as she describes how, with husband and daughters, she set to work making a life on a rough-and-tumble island in Puget Sound, a ferry ride from Seattle.

Very interesting and unexpectedly funny!
Betty MacDonald is the obvious first choice followed by Kimi, the intelligent Japanese-American girl who I instantly liked.
They were all entertaining. Heather Henderson is a great narrator.
Betty MacDonald's charm and wonderful, witty observations made her book about a killer disease wonderfully entertaining, but it didn't make me laugh out loud. She is a vivacious writer and I will now try some of her other books.
