KIRKUS REVIEW

A double dozen plus short pieces of home effrontery reveal the author's battered ago as he copes with his wife and three daughters. From the aspects of unholy matrimony to the strange interludes of a writer working at home, family vacations, gardens, female language and wiles, the attempts to ""merge"" into the children's activities, he laments the trials of car salesmen, credit managers, callers and their jokes, girls growing up, the firm little hand in improving and clothing the man of the family. There's much more in this catechism of woes -- gadgets, quizzes, homework, hot breakfasts, the common cold, etc., etc. Amiable anecdotage from many magazine appearances of a professional humorist -- for the whole household.
