Book
Susan Konig's first book offers a uniquely frank look at the modern family by "an exceptional humorist on the order of Erma Bombeck and Jean Kerr" (Library Journal).

The Konigs can barely turn around in a city apartment that seems to be shrinking. With Baby #3 on the way, they take drastic measures: They buy a house and move to The 'Burbs. Countless sticky adventures ensue.

In her hilariously unflinching account of motherhood and domestic pursuits, Konig shares a supermom's little secrets, from the importance of Cheerios to the truth about Bambi's mother ("she was running an errand").
