About the Book

A new collection of hilarious stories from Richard's much-loved ABC radio show, THANK GOD IT'S FRIDAY, in the style of his previous collections, IN BED WITH JOCASTA and DESPERATE HUSBANDS.

'Full-on, uncontrollable, laugh-till-you-weep stories. Glover has become the indispensable chronicler of Australian family life.' Geraldine Brooks Wickedly funny stories of everyday life, as heard on ABC Radio's thank God It's Friday. Meet the sexy and feisty Jocasta; confront teenage rebellion in the form of a fish called Wanda; do battle with magpies the size of small fighter jets; try to work out which font you use when speaking the language of love; and find out what men really have to offer. In Richard Glover's stories, the day-to-day becomes vivid, magical and laugh-out-loud funny. 'Glover is better than Proust. OK, maybe not better, but how often do you find yourself in a cold bath at midnight still chuckling over Proust?' Debra Adelaide 'desperately, wickedly funny ... Richard Glover has done the miraculous - he's made ordinary family life extraordinarily entertaining ... Go ahead and open a page at random - you'll laugh out loud.' Augusten Burroughs
