One of the writers and producers of the hit HBO dramatic show Six Feet Under, comedienne

Jill Soloway, is offering her pithy observations about life, love, dysfunctional families and Hollywood shenanigans in the piquantly titled memoir

Why Jews Go to the Bathroom with the Door Open. Free Press senior editor

Amy Scheibe swiftly preempted the book from

Daniel Greenberg at Levine Greenberg, buying North American, first serial and audio rights, and will publish in fall next year. The prolific Soloway has worked on numerous TV sitcoms, produces a biweekly live comedy show in L.A., and adapted David Sedaris's Me Talk Pretty One Day for the movies.
