In this hilarious, affecting collection of personal essays, M.A.C. Farrant tackles the absurdities of family life from both sides of the generational divide: as a young girl growing up in a dysfunctional, cobbled-together family in the 1960s, and as a mother herself to three willful teenagers. The pieces are funny and sharp, completely original while describing an utterly familiar world. Combining David Sedaris' self-deprecation and deep sense of the absurd with Erma Bombeck's skewering of domestic life, Farrant has a gift for making those observations that would be harrowing, if they weren't so funny. Praise for M.A.C. Farrant: "A brave iconoclast." -- Publishers Weekly "[O]ne of the best humourists in the land." -- The Ottawa Citizen "M.A.C. Farrant is one of our most original and imaginative writers, defying all the usual categories…. An entertaining and heart-tuggingly poignant memoir." -- Edmonton Journal on My Turquoise Years
