Gurwitch tells stories included in her memoir, I See You Made an Effort, that range from planning her future retirement in an elder hostel in Costa Rica to navigating the extensive anti-aging offerings in the department store beauty counter to aiding in the assisted suicide of her best friend that Bill Maher says are "unexpected, imaginative... her observations just plain crack me up."

Her work off-Broadway has earned her inclusion in the New York Times' Top Ten Performances of the Year. With her tenure at NPR and now with three books to her name, she is the ultimate re-inventor and she's a Jewish mother to boot.
