Publisher's Summary

Greg Fitzsimmons has made a lot of what appear to be bad decisions. It's what he was raised to do. Most parents would hide or destroy any evidence so clearly demonstrating their child's failures, but - lucky for us - Greg Fitzsimmons's family has preserved each mistake in its original envelope like a trophy in a case, lest he ever forget where he came from.
Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons is Greg's life, told through this cavalcade of disciplinary letters, incident reports, and newspaper clippings that his parents received from teachers and school officials. Greg picks up where his parents left off with his own collection of letters received during college and throughout his successful career as a writer, producer, and stand-up comic. Revealing the larger story of how Greg's distinctly dysfunctional Irish-American family bred him to blindly challenge anyone, anytime, anywhere, over anything, Dear Mrs. Fitzsimmons comes full circle to show that the Fitzsimmons torch has been passed on proudly to a new generation.

Funny and very entertaining.

Funny man gives insight into his life growing up in an Irish family, and his life as an adult. I found myself laughing out loud a lot while enjoying this book. Good, clean, light humor. Would recommend it to just about everyone.

I'd never heard of the author before reading the book, but chose it because I liked the premise of building the story around letters to his mom. His childhood wasn't wildly dysfunctional enough to make for a great story ( like 'Running with Scissors' or ' The Glass Castle') and when it comes to writing, let's just say he's no Michael Perry, who can make you laugh out loud on one page and move you to tears on the next. If I was already a fan of Greg Fitzsimmons, I might have liked the book more.
