What disappointed you about Keeping House?
Some of the most beautiful cars in the world have that Mustang badge on the grill. The 1974 Ford Mustang II was definitely not one of them. This book is a bit like that. An interesting idea that just didn't turn out all that interesting.

Any additional comments?
I think this could have been interesting but the episodic nature of the book really works against it. Added to that it's not really all that funny. I think maybe someone who smoked too much of the whacky weed might find it hilarious but without the weed it's just dull.
