Short Synopsis
From noted blogger Jen Mann comes a collection of hilarious essays about suburban life and motherhood.

Full Synopsis
Jen Mann doesn't have a filter, which sometimes gets her in trouble with her neighbors, her fellow PTA moms, and that one woman who tried to sell her sex toys at a home shopping party. Known for her hilariously acerbic observations on her blog People I Want to Punch in the Throat, Mann now brings her sharp wit to bear on suburban life, marriage, and motherhood in this laugh-out-loud collection of essays.

From the politics of joining a play group, to the thrill of mothers' night out at the gun range, to the rewards of your most meaningful relationship (the one you have with your cleaning lady), nothing is sacred or off-limits. So the next time you find yourself wearing fuzzy bunny pajamas in the school carpool line or accidentally stuck at a co-worker's swingers party, just think, What would Jen Mann do? Or better yet, buy her book.

"Jen Mann has an amazing way of telling stories that will make you cringe and burst out laughing at the same time." ---Karen Alpert, author of I Heart My Little A-Holes

"Jen Mann says the things we're all too afraid to say. Her honest and hilarious writing style reminds me of David Sedaris and Tina Fey." ---Robin O'Bryant, author of Is Ketchup a Vegetable: And Other Lies Moms Tell Themselves
