In this humorous parody of a childrenand#8217;s literature classic, familiar to generations of married couples, the gentle sarcasm and clever illustrations combine to make a perfect book for the end of every frustrating, exhausting, utterly priceless day.
In the vein of bestselling parody Go the F*ck to Sleep
comes Goodnight Husband, Goodnight Wife
, a distinctly grown-up spin on the classic childrens bedtime story. Striking a balance between snarky and sweet, ribald and romantic, this fully illustrated new book weaves a tale of domestic discord—and, ultimately, a loving resolution.
Through his-and-hers observations, Goodnight Husband, Goodnight Wife skewers the not-so-appealing changes that marriage often triggers in a couple. Back hair, midlife crises, granny panties, man boobs . . . nothing is off limits!
