the new book from the author of In Bed with Jocasta and the Dag's Dictionary. Meet Richard, the original desperate husband, and his partner, the fabulous but formidable Jocasta. And say hello to their teenage offspring - the teutonic Batboy and his irrepressible younger brother. Desperate Husbands lifts the lid on so-called normal family life, and reveals its soulful, hilarious absurdity. Welcome to a world where household appliances conspire against their owners, fathers practise ballet in the hallway and dead insects spell out an SOS on the kitchen floor. By turns sweet-natured yet perverse, familiar yet wildly original, Desperate Husbands may be the funniest book you read this year. 'Desperate Husbands is desperately, wickedly funny. I devoured it in one sitting, greedily checking ahead to see that I still had pages left. Richard Glover has done the miraculous - he's made ordinary family life extraordinarily entertaining. this is a must-read for anybody who's ever had a wife or a husband or a mother or a stove or a child or a pulse. Go ahead and open a page at random - you'll laugh out loud.' - Augusten Burroughs, bestselling author of Running with Scissors.… (mere)

Desperate Husbands is Richard Glover’s 9th book. Using examples from his life with his fabulous but formidable partner, Jocasta and his teenage offspring, Batboy and The Space Cadet, Glover explores subjects as diverse as wilful appliances, sport, purchases from late-night TV ads, moustaches, cleaning-obsessed mothers, exchange students, coping while the spouse is away, foreign languages, lead poisoning, hiring a DVD, studying for the HSC, specialty magazines, procreative urge, tying knots, garment cleaning, inventing Olympic sports, the war on terror, the Easter Show, Repetitive Joke Syndrome, ego, PINs, overused phrases, too much choice, ageing, thongs, Home Renovation TV shows, warning labels, holiday cottages, the census, needing glasses, first and subsequent children, everyday heroism, seventies food, snoring, uses for men and Christmas shopping.He gives us guides on: Men and housework; How to Write a Book; The Little Read Books; Water Conservation for Teenage Boys; The Dieter’s Code of Practice; The Real Road Rules; Ten Ways to Argue Like a Man; and The Blokes’ Supermarket; If you do not spend most of this book snickering, chuckling or laughing out loud, there is something seriously wrong with you. I did have to stop reading once or twice as I could not see the print for the tears (of mirth) in my eyes. In the chapter on warnings I was laughing so much, I had to stop reading to visit the bathroom to save myself from embarrassing incontinence. So here’s my warning to add to those: don’t read this book with a full bladder! ( )
