Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“Linda Keenan is the smartest, sassiest girl you know times ten, after two shots of tequila.  Her brazen, ballsy look at  life in the suburbs is more than laugh out loud—Subugatory will make you shoot milk out of your nose, then immediately re-up the lease on your townhouse in the city.” —Karen Karbo, author of The Gospel According to Coco Chanel and How Georgia Became O’Keeffe

“What life might be like if Sarah Silverman moved to the burbs. A sexy, saucy, hilarious romp.” —Bill Diehl, ABC Entertainment Correspondent

“‘Hilarious.’ ‘Insightful.’ ‘Genius.’ People are always saying these words to me. Now, finally, I can say them about someone else: specifically whoever wrote this book. Linda somebody." —Robert Carlock, Executive Producer of NBC's 30 Rock

 

“Linda Keenan is the only person I know who can write about hard-core public policy and salacious suburbanites with the same wit and insight.”Janine Wedel, author of Shadow Elite: How the World's New Power Brokers Undermine Democracy, Government, and the Free Market

Wow this book's hilarious but it's so edgy, blurbing it might get me in trouble.”Anonymous Top Network News Producer

    So hilarious it got me in trouble in the quiet car!

    I picked up this book at the recommendation of a friend and started reading it while riding on Amtrak. I found myself repeatedly laughing out loud, much to the dismay of my fellow travelers in the quiet car, and after the third dirty look from the woman across the aisle, I finally moved seats--Ms. Keenan doesn't hold back any punches, and the read demanded unrestrained laughter. The cafe car was far more accommodating.

    Smart, sharp tongued, irreverent, and spot on satire. Very different than what I've seen of the TV show, but that's fine by me. Looking forward to more by this author, but getting little doses daily since I friended her on Facebook!
