In The Grass Is Always Greener over the Septic Tank, Bombeck rides the train to the suburbs. In lands like the Suburbian Gems subdivision, settlers from the city brave endless cul-de-sacs and overly helpful insurance salesmen. Picture windows bring new meaning to the term "neighborly". A poorly timed trip to the restroom results in a promotion to Girl Scout Cookie Captain. And brave parents fight epic battles to get sex out of the schools and back into the gutters.
With Barbara Rosenblat's perfect comic timing, the author of If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries - What Am I Doing in the Pits? and A Marriage Made in Heaven, or Too Tired for an Affair adds to her reputation as America's favorite funny lady.

Tell us about yourself!
Suburban bliss anywhere in the 60's 70's or even 80's. I laughed out loud at times. Such an insiders look at all that was "must have" during the suburban boom. If you've ever lived or dreamed of living in Suburbia you will find this audio book bordering on historically accurate in a rib tickling way!
