Big Girls Don't Fry: Rehoboth Beach Wrap-Up

Fay Jacobs

Fay Jacobs is back . . . again . . . really . . . for the LAST time!


As the author of five previous humorous memoirs, activist and comedian Fay Jacobs returns with her FINAL collection of tall tales, Big Girls Don't Fry: Rehoboth Beach Wrap Up. And, as you'd expect, It's chock-full of Fay's signature witty, wise, and often laugh-out-loud commentary about the craziness of contemporary life in the diverse and welcoming resort town of Rehoboth Beach on the Delaware Coast.


This time, though, everyone's favorite "Sit-Down Comic" tangles with the after-effects of an insane election, kissing penguins, riding an opinionated camel, wearing pussy hats, and masking in the time of Covid . . .


Big Girls Don't Fry was compiled over the last few years, beginning in January 2021 and ending with an urgent plea to get out and vote for our lives. It chronicles her chronic losing battle with nature and changing technology, revisits some of her greatest hits and misses, deals with the ups and downs of social distancing, masking, and video happy hours, and reflects on what it was like to be honored by a troop of Girl Scouts.


And through it all, Fay finds a way to make her stories provocative, political, occasionally heartwarming, and reliably hilarious.


It's all captured in the final installment of Fay Jacobs' award-winning Tales from Rehoboth Series.


Come along for the ride--you'll be happy you did!
