A Marriage Made in Heaven

Summary

“I now pronounce you husband and wife.” There are few phrases as sobering, with the possible exceptions of “We have lift-off” and “This country is at war.” Yet, as they have done for centuries, millions of courageous men and women continue to walk down the aisle every year, without so much as a job description. Now, in her most autobiographical book, Erma Bombeck puts it all in loving and laughing perspective, as she looks back on her own 43-year-but-who’s-counting marriage.

Summary

Erma Bombeck's humorous insights about family life always tickle the funny bone. Her New York Times best-sellers sold millions of copies to gleeful readers around the world. In The Grass Is Always Greener over the Septic Tank, Bombeck rides the train to the suburbs. In lands like the Suburbian Gems subdivision, settlers from the city brave endless cul-de-sacs and overly helpful insurance salesmen. Picture windows bring new meaning to the term "neighborly". A poorly timed trip to the restroom results in a promotion to Girl Scout Cookie Captain. And brave parents fight epic battles to get sex out of the schools and back into the gutters. With Barbara Rosenblat's perfect comic timing, the author of If Life Is a Bowl of Cherries - What Am I Doing in the Pits? and A Marriage Made in Heaven, or Too Tired for an Affair adds to her reputation as America's favorite funny lady.

Summary

Erma Bombeck, Mutter von drei Kindern und verheiratet mit einem fordernden Mann, kämpft sich mit Humor und Ironie durch die Tücken des alltäglichen Lebens. Die Kinder wollen im Kinderzimmer Kaninchenzucht betreiben, der Ehegatte wünscht jeden Abend kulinarische Gaumenfreuden und die Putzfrau verschmäht grundsätzlich jegliches Waschmittel. Da hilft nur Ruhe zu bewahren, tief durchzuatmen und sich mit Heiterkeit der Situationen anzunehmen. Erma Louise Bombeck (1927-1996) war eine US-amerikanische Humoristin und Schriftstellerin, die in der zweiten Hälfte des 20. Jahrhunderts durch ihre humorvollen Bücher und Zeitungskolumnen große Beliebtheit erreichte. In der Zeit von 1965 bis zu ihrem Tod 1996 wurden mehr als viertausend ihrer Kolumnen in rund 800 Tageszeitungen publiziert. Bombeck hatte selbst drei Kinder und begann im Alter von 37 Jahren mit viel Witz und Liebenswürdigkeit über die Freuden und Leiden im Leben einer Hausfrau und Mutter zu schreiben.
