From the Publisher:
A series of comedic essays by the actor known for roles in such productions as Stella and Wet Hot American Summer shares acerbic observations about his family life in suburbia, from shopping for an unnecessary divorce home to attending kindergarten recitals. 50,000 first printing.From the comedian who brought you Stella and The State, Michael Ian Black delivers a collection of irreverent essays that say the kinds of things you're afraid to admit. Here he is: naked, exposed, a little chilly, and understandably shriveled.

As a husband and father living in the suburbs, Michael asks the question so many of us ask at one point or another: How did I end up here? (And also: If Fat Kevin Federline succumbs to his own wasted potential, what does that mean for the rest of us?) The answers to these questions, and others that you probably would have never thought to ask, are painstakingly detailed here, in this debut memoir.

Darkly humorous and told with raw honesty, Michael takes on his childhood, his marriage, his children, and his career with unexpected candor and deadpan wit in this funny-because-it's-true essay collection. He shares the neuroses that have plagued him since childhood and how they shaped him into the man he is today. From how his lesbian feminist mother raised him to be a tough but sensitive New Seventies Man like Alan Alda to how he backed into marrying his wife by breaking up with her first, and how he learned to use Santa Claus as a ?Bad Cop? threat to control his kids year round, this is ?an amusing look at masculine insecurity and confusion? (Kirkus Reviews).


"Comedians have mined marriage for material since there have been comedians, but Black's deeply personal memoir succeeds by going beyond the jokes and into uncomfortable places." - Kyle Ryan 02/29/2012
