    1 thought on “I'm Dyin' Here: A Life in the Paper

    1. If I tried really hard, maybe I could find something about this book that I didn't like. But I doubt it. The irony of the theme of this ridiculously thoughtful and entertaining read is that Grobaty's style of writing is as the quintessential internet blogger: Just staggering, often hilarious insight into -- yes, the human condition, that's all.

    2. I cannot rate this book higher than five stars, and that makes me sad. Increasingly intelligent and full of wit and humor, Tim Grobaty's "I'm Dyin' Here" reads very much like a current Bukowski or even like Mark Twain's nonfiction. While roughly half of the book are of his various columns that depict his life in-that-particular-moment, they are instantly relatable in many ways, whether you're younger or older. As part of Long Beach Mayor's Book Club, Mayor Robert Garcia chose a book that perfect [...]

    3. What a life. None too small or glib!Entertainment comes in many forms. Mr. Grobaty has a voice. It is pleasant and warm to read. I had several moments where I laughed out loud. Highly recommend this to readers of his daily column.

    4. Two stars for the book, added one because I live in Long Beach so I enjoyed some the references to my city. Clunky metaphors throughout, author's annoying habit of referring to himself as "us" and sophomoric writing (albeit somewhat endearing with the self deprecating tone). I have lived in Long Beach for 13+ years without ever reading the Press Telegram and this book did not convince me to break that streak.

    5. Hilarious, touching, extremely well written book by a local journalist (who is now a local celebrity!) Grobaty writes about his life, his family and his job Loved reading about our city and our paper -- this book feels so close to home. Sweetly nostalgic. You'll love it! PS. Hey my family-once-removed-but-connected-for-eternity Dave is mentioned in the book! Always in the middle of things that Dave :-)

    6. .Having been mentioned a few times, skewered a few times, and given the title of "minister" by Tim Grobaty, I can tell you honestly that this his latest book , is as reflection of the wit and wisdom that is uniquely his.
