Description

New York Times–bestselling author Erma Bombeck's timeless and hilarious look at the trials and tribulations of family life.

Ever since she was a child, Erma Bombeck has been an expert worrier, and married life has only honed that skill. She gets anxious about running out of ball bearings; about snakes sneaking in through the pipes; about making meaningful conversation on New Year's Eve. Married life, she realizes, is an unpredictable saga even when you know exactly how loud your husband snores every night—and she wouldn't have it any other way.

In this crisp collection of essays, Bombeck shows off the irresistible style that made her one of America's favorite humorists for more than three decades. When she sharpens her wit, no family member is sacred and no self-help fad is safe.

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