Overview

Amy Sedaris meets Erma Bombeck in this no-holds-barred look at that most fraught of family institutions: mealtime! In Kathy Buckworth's opinion, there's an inherent problem with the expectations around the family meal. On the one hand, you've got the experts who claim that sitting down to eat together can prevent children from getting into trouble while simultaneously creating close-knit families. On the other hand, you've got the moms, most of whom would rather be doing anything but standing in front of the stove (drinking a glass of wine comes immediately to mind). Throw in the son who thinks his food tastes better on the blue plate with the fish, and the daughter who won't eat anything green, and you've got a recipe for disaster—not for familial peace and harmony!

Laugh-out-loud funny, more accurate than most of us would care to admit—and with a few recipes thrown in for good measure—Shut Up and Eat! is a must-read for any woman who's ever wondered: What the hell am I cooking tonight?
