E125 - Linda Presto - Where’s My Wine Glass - Getting Your Kid to College Without Losing Your Mind

The Book: "Where’s My Wine Glass?!, Getting Your Kid to College Without Losing Your Mind" is a frolicking collection of humorous essays for parents of children who are prepping for, leaving for, or attending college. As a long-time college coach, private tutor, and parent of two failure-to-launch college graduates, Linda Presto’s sarcastic voice, no-nonsense tone, and years of experience deliver a much-needed respite from the insanity and competition of acceptance to college. Parents in this stage need a laugh and some straight talk about the process and its pitfalls. Linda is a self-deprecating, yet knowledgeable narrator, who takes parents on a journey through the highlight reel of what they hope will end in smarter kids… and less laundry. Addressing subjects like college visits, university rankings, and empty nest syndrome, Linda’s personal accounts and anecdotes from years of working with students and parents shed light on the universal nature of rearing children and the parents who only want the best for them. That and they want them off their couch!

Our Guest: Linda is a freelance writer, tutor, and college coach working with students and offering tummy rubs to their pets. Linda hikes, bikes, and boats, with her best bud and “rescuer” Jackson, who gives the best hugs even without opposable thumbs. 

Linda is a journalist, teacher, and essayist, who earned her MFA in Writing from Vermont College of Fine Arts. 

She is releasing her first humor book, “Where’s My Wine Glass?! Getting Your Kid to College Without Losing Your Mind” while snickering at her own jokes. Linda teaches Writing at her community college, tutors students, and began a reading series for local writers in New Jersey.

Dave's Audio Book Recommendation for November 2022

Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story - Bono

Bono—artist, activist, and the lead singer of Irish rock band U2—has written a memoir: honest and irreverent, intimate and profound, Surrender is the story of the remarkable life he’s lived, the challenges he’s faced, and the friends and family who have shaped and sustained him.

Narrated by the author, Surrender is an intimate, immersive listening experience, telling stories from Bono’s early days in Dublin, to joining a band and playing sold out stadiums around the world with U2, plus his more than 20 years of activism.

Throughout a remarkable life, music has always been a constant for Bono and in the audiobook, his distinctive voice is interwoven with a very personal soundtrack adding atmosphere and texture to each and every scene. From moments of classic U2 hits to snippets by The Clash, Patti Smith, Verdi, Johnny Cash and Mozart, Surrender also exclusively features clips of newly recorded re imagined versions of U2 songs including ‘Sunday Bloody Sunday’, ‘With Or Without You’, ‘One’, ‘Beautiful Day’ and more, glimpsed for the first time on Surrender: 40 Songs, One Story.
