The Suburban You PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

The Suburban You  free pdf Mark Falanga is a slick urban dweller, at the top of his game professionally, with a gorgeous corporate executive wife and a hip coterie in the coolest neighborhood in the city. But when baby makes three, Mark and his family enter the twilight zone called the suburbs, where public schools are good, many wives stay home, and children ride their tricycles in the driveway. With the dry wit of David Sedaris and Dave Barry's love of the absurd, Falanga details his new, suburban landscape from the point of view of a bewildered but gung ho everyman. From the complex political pecking order in the neighborhood, with its ultracompetitive block parties and its consuming holiday-card rivalry, to the surprises lurking on every corner - such as the twelve-year-old pyromaniac next door - THE SUBURBAN YOU describes in slyly understated prose the vicissitudes of life in the 'burbs.
