My sister, Elizabeth Beckwith, is publishing a book this Fall with Harper Collins, Raising the Perfect Child Through Guilt and Manipulation. Above is a picture of her and the book's cover, which has just appeared online at Amazon.com, which includes this blurb about her:
About the Author
Stand-up comedian and actress Elizabeth Beckwith was one of the seven comics featured in a TIME magazine article entitled, "Funny: The Next Generation." TIME writer Joel Stein wrote that Elizabeth "seems like Jenna Elfman if Jenna Elfman were funny." And in 2001 she was chosen as one of Variety's "Ten Comics to Watch." She's made numerous stand-up appearances on The Late, Late Show, and, in addition to her stand up, she's been on CBS's The Ladies' Man and HBO's Curb Your Enthusiasm. Elizabeth's comedic talent transcends any one medium: she's an excellent stand-up comic, a great actress, and a hilarious writer.
