Mothership of Fools 

Adrienne Zurub isn't boo-hooing in the unemployment line; she's hawking a tell-all autobiography about her 26-year nursing stint at the Cleveland Clinic, which ended when her bosses canned her in January for self-publishing the book. In Notes From the Mothership, Zurub describes "angry, uncontrolled behavior" from several doctors, including one physician she brands as an "arrogant, misogynistic, dehumanizing yet brilliantly talented bastard." So far, Zurub has sold thousands of copies of the book on, and she's now peddling its third printing. She signs her book at 7 tonight at Joseph-Beth Booksellers, 24519 Cedar Road in Lyndhurst. Admission is free. Call 216-691-7000 or visit
Wed., March 5, 7 p.m., 2008
