Publisher's Summary

A brilliantly funny exploration of the twin mysteries of parenthood and families from the Pulitzer Prize winner and The New York Times best-selling author of Insane City.

In uproarious, brand-new pieces, Barry tackles everything from family trips, bat mitzvah parties and dating (he’s serious about that title: “When my daughter can legally commence dating - February 24, 2040 - I intend to monitor her closely, even if I am deceased”) to funeral instructions (“I would like my eulogy to be given by William Shatner”), the differences between male and female friendships, the deeper meaning of Fifty Shades of Grey, and a father’s ultimate sacrifice: accompanying his daughter to a Justin Bieber concert (“It turns out that the noise teenaged girls make to express happiness is the same noise they would make if their feet were being gnawed off by badgers.")

Let’s face it: families not only enrich our lives every day, they drive us completely around the bend. Thank goodness we have Dave Barry as our guide!

What the Critics Say

"[W]ith Barry as the narrator of his own work, the essays take on the quality of a stand-up comedy monologue with impeccable comedic pauses." (AudioFile)

    "It's been a long time Dave"

    It's been a long time since Dave Barry made me laugh out loud. He will always get a good smile from me, but at several points in this collection of essays I had to press pause just to laugh. Note, if you're into being PC and can't grasp hyperboles, move on.
