Family Home Screaming

Book 4 in the The Mormon Humor Collection

by Robert Kirby

Cartoons by Pat Bagley
Just when you thought it was safe, Pat & Kirby follow you home.
•If families are forever, will Mom always have gray hair?
•What happens when the dog makes more sense than your kids?
•Planned Parenthood. The perfect oxymoron?
•Is selling your teenager for 3 cents a pound really good family value?
•Fatherhood. Shouldn’t I have a license to do this?
If questions like these plague you and yours – or worse, if they make sense – you need this book. Pat and Kirby delve deeply into the secrets of effective parenting (there are three, and no one knows what they are), and explore what makes relatively nice men and women want to hurt themselves by having kids.
The fourth in their wild conspiracy series that began with Sunday of the Living Dead, Salt Lake Tribune columnist Robert Kirby and cartoonist Pat Bagley join farces again, this time over something none of us can escape – family.

Good Reads to Give or Get
by Laurie Williams Sowby

“Books are always on my Christmas wish list. Here are a few that may work well on someone else’s.
FOR ADULTS: When the day comes that we can’t laugh at ourselves, we’re in trouble. To avoid that hazard, consider picking up Salt Lake Tribune columnist Robert Kirby’s Family Home Screaming, a 1999 original (and I do mean original) re-issued from Leicester Bay Books, along with Sunday of the Living Dead and Kirby Soup for the Soul. I once worked at a newspaper with Kirby, and I can only say it was an experience.
What you get in these books is the real thing, from a dad describing the angst of having a teenager take a driving test to a day trying to enjoy a water park, there’s stuff here we all recognize and relate to.
Seeing titles like “Rise and Whine” and his assessment of grand-parenthood as “the second most fun part of procreation,” how could a reader not smile? And to top it off, cartoonist Bagley’s added his own witty takes on family life.”
