Summary
"...Laurie Notaro isn't exactly a domestic goddess--unless that means she fully embraces her genetic hoarding predisposition, sneaks peeks at her husband's daily journal, or has made a list of the people she wants on her Apocalypse Survival team (her husband's not on it). Notaro chronicles her chronic misfortune in the domestic arts, including cooking, cleaning, and putting on Spanx while sweaty (which should technically qualify as an Olympic sport). Housebroken is a rollicking new collection of essays showcasing her irreverent wit and inability to feel shame."--
Summary
A new collection of essays from the New York Times best-selling author of The Idiot Girl and the Flaming Tantrum of Death describes her personal attempts at mastering the domestic arts, including manners, power outages and entertaining guests
