Description
"She is marvelously funny, direct as a hypodermic, a virtuoso in the field of suburban living....Lovely stuff." VOGUE. It's the expose to end all exposes--the truth about the suburbs: where they planted trees and crabgrass came up, where they planted the schools and taxes came up, where they died of old age trying to merge onto the freeway and where they finally got sex out of the schools and back into the gutters.

display_description

The "marvelously funny" and much-loved humorist explores the perils of suburban living in this New York Times bestseller (Vogue).


For years, the Bombecks have heard rumors of a magical land called Suburbia where the air is clean, the grass is trimmed, and children don't risk getting mugged on their walk to school. After watching their friends flee the city for subdivided utopias like Bonaparte's Retreat and Mortgage Mañana, Erma and her family load up their belongings and cry, "Station wagons . . . ho!"

But life on the suburban frontier is not as perfect as they had hoped. The trees are stunted, the house is cramped, and there's no grass at all. But the Bombecks will make do, for they are suburbanites now—the last true pioneers!

This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author's estate.
