Description
A boorish narrator sets down some 73 pieces of advice—from "Putting Things Away" to "The Marriage Almanac"—for the edification of his wife, young son, and two-year-old daughter, in this satire of Victorian handbooks by the author of Log of the S.S. The Mrs. Unguentine. The control freak pater familias takes care of every last detail, with an opinion for all occasions, lest his family attempt to think and live for themselves. Be sure to peruse the index, itself a droll masterpiece.

"[Stanley] Crawford negotiates the literary tightrope he has strung up faultlessly, providing a piercing and comical dissection of the modern institution of marriage."—Newsday
