Everyone knows soaps arenít real life. Or are they? Just in time for gift-giving season, here is You Know Your Life Is a Soap Opera If . . . Fast, funny, and far from implausible, this charming little book shares all the truisms soap fans will recognize from their favorite storylines -- and from life. Things like:

--Everybody has secrets. Everybody else knows them.
--Be kind to strangers. They are likely to be your family.
--No former spouse ever really dies.
--Never talk to yourself -- some scheming bitch will overhear and use it against you.
--If you marry for money again and again, it wonít buy you happiness -- but you will have a great wardrobe.
--Donít reject a man because heís evil -- he could develop into a (smoldering, enigmatic, and/or brooding) romantic hero.
--Youíd be robbing yourself of the full courtroom experience if you were not threatened with contempt at least once.

--Okay, the church burned down, the cake exploded, and your father was arrested for embezzlement while walking you down the aisle . . . Stop crying like this is the only wedding youíre ever going to have.

Filled with knowing asides and the affection that comes with an intimate knowledge of the genre, itís sure to top soap opera fansí wish list.
