Publisher's Summary

When Stern moves with his wife and small son to the suburbs, he expects to find greenery, good neighbors, and peace of mind. Instead, he lands center stage in the "Age of Anxiety". Bugs attack his bushes. The anti-Semite down the street insults his wife. Every conceivable fantasy of disaster assails Stern's fevered mind, topped off by the arrival of a world-class ulcer.

This production includes an exclusive interview with author Bruce Jay Friedman.

Boring

I could not finish this book. I could not appreciate the humor.
