Overview

If you’re not him, you know him.

He’s challenged the grocery store. He’s confronted the HOA. He’s even taken on Santa himself. He doesn’t usually win. These are the tales of the Dumb White Husband and they are all available here in this collected edition.

This handsome volume includes:

Dumb White Husband vs. the Grocery Store - John would rather sit and watch the game, but his wife needs some things at the store. Can he complete the list and get back in time to see the end of the game?

Dumb White Husband vs. Halloween - Every Halloween, Chris has the scariest house on the block and gives out the best candy. But, this year, someone is showing him up and he’ll stop at nothing to find out who.

Dumb White Husband vs. Santa - Erik has planned the perfect Christmas for his family. The plan is foolproof, bulletproof and flame retardant. Nothing can undo the hours of planning and preparation. Nothing except maybe odd-shaped packages, ill-timed fruitcakes or an errant neighborhood Santa Claus.

Dumb White Husband vs. the Tooth Fairy - Erik always has a plan and he’s sure he would have figured out the whole Tooth Fairy thing eventually. But, when his three-year-old son takes a frisbee to the mouth, he’s forced to speed things up. Between neighborhood kids with big mouths and unhelpful dentists he’s going to need to improvise. Will he bend to the pressure of inflation? Will he get caught in the act? And, what do you do with those teeth anyway?

Dumb White Husband for President (A novella) - There comes a time in every man's life when he must stand for the things he believes in. John doesn't believe in bagging his grass. So, when a new allergy-prone neighbor gets the HOA to require it, there's only one thing he can do – run for President of The Creeks of Sage Valley Phase II.

John, Chris and Erik put aside most of their differences to run a campaign that they hope will see John elected as President and end the meddling of the rule-loving new kid on the block. Will they succeed? It’s doubtful.

Note: Previously released as Dumb White Husband for President.

    It seems that men and women truly tend to take each other much m

    It seems that men and women truly tend to take each other much more seriously in today's society, and gender stereotypes are considered rather dangerous. This means that poking fun at gender differences and tendencies is generally frowned upon. This book was indeed a refreshing read because it does the unthinkable--makes fun of the typical white husband in the typical suburban household. The collection of short stories was quite an easy, enjoyable read. It was nice to see men who weren't afraid to act like "real men." It is almost a throw-back to the old sitcoms that depict the husband as dumb, lazy, and ruled by logic. Indeed this is satire at its finest. My favorite story was the first about the grocery store because it is exactly what men do in that situation! And the book is enriched by having a male author. It is more acceptable to have a man make fun of himself.




    I will say that the profanity did somewhat ruin the book for me. Now, don't get me wrong. I get it--guys do tend to use more colorful language than men. And I did not mark the book down for this. All I am saying is that I prefer to read that the character swore or used an expletive rather than reading what was said. I also found that my interest began to wane somewhat towards the end. I think that the book is meant to read as several short stories at random times. In other words, should you decide to read the book, don't read it in one sitting. I took great delight in every story with the exception of the last. It was a little lengthier than the others, and I believe I would have engaged with the story more if it had been shorter.




    Notwithstanding, I can recommend this book to most of you out there. It is the perfect respite and change of scene for those of you who wish to read something a little different. But I don't know how many men would enjoy reading it, but I can assure you women would!




    I was sent a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
