Awkward Family Photos

Awkward Family Photos Cover

 

Staff Pick

This uproarious book delivers the same caliber of cringe-inducing poses, teen angst, and uncomfortable moments found on the hilarious website where it all began. It's so painfully awkward, you'll forget you're not actually looking at photos of yourself. (Unless you're in there, in which case, we're sorry.)

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Based on the hit website, AwkwardFamilyPhotos.com ("painful, regrettable, horrifyingly awesome snaps of family bonding, you will laugh so hard that people in adjoining offices will ask what's wrong with you." Esquire), this book features never-before-seen photos and hilarious personal stories covering everything from uncomfortable moments with relatives, teen angst, sibling rivalry, and family vacations from hell.

Cringe at the forced poses, bad hair, and matching outfits — all prompting us to look at our own families and celebrate the fact that we're not alone. Nothing says awkward better than an uncomfortable family photograph!

Review:

“This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen.” Judd Apatow

Review:

"Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book." Joel Stein, Time magazine columnist

Review:

"I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication." Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth

Review:

"Awkward Family Photos is the funniest book that I've read in a long time. It reminds you that it's okay to laugh at yourself and celebrates the family that made you awkward in the first place." Mia Kirshner, The L Word

Synopsis:

This spin-off of the popular blog is a hilarious tribute to all the embarrassing moments — from family disco nights to Renaissance-themed pig roasts — that make people love their families enough to shame them.
