"Herb Benham can make me believe I want to live in Bakersfield. For an LA-loving girl, that's quite some declaration. That's how good a writer he is." --Patt Morrison, Los Angeles Times columnist and radio-TV personality
Longtime Bakersfield Californian columnist Herb Benham has just finished his third book, "That Was Easy: 15 Years of Collected Columns."
"That Was Easy" chronicles the transitions of one man's life. These experiences are universal, and Herb brings us closer with wit and a wry vision that opens the door to this world. From biking accidents to birthday celebrations, Herb shows us that life is full of surprises, with joy and sorrow, struggle and accomplishment. He is our everyman in this journey called life, and he makes it look easy.
"That Was Easy" is 210 pages and features 78 stories and 16 photos.
