Who could have guessed that the Queen of Perpetual Perfection was headed for a fall? Connor and Downey, the wise guys who brought the civilized world Is Martha Stuart Living?, naturally. Long before Martha Stewart's ImClone troubles made the front pages, the humor duo had started spoofing it up in anticipation of her own previously-announced-but-now-postponed autobiography, Martha, Really and Truly. Now, in Martha, Really and Cruelly, the best-selling humorists deliver their own version of events leading up to the scandal.
From opening chapters on "Ancestors" and "Infancy," cunning, greed, and treachery stalk this faux autobiography. Written in "Martha's" voice, the book reveals early incidents of unethical playing-house tactics, questionable Kool-Aid stand practices, highly suspect home ec grades, and devious dating strategies. And that's before she's out of her teens!
If anyone can take uncannily accurate aim at the Dominatrix of Domesticity, it's the errant Irishmen. Their breakout national best-seller Is Martha Stuart Living? was followed by the best-selling Martha Stuart's Better Than You at Entertaining and Martha Stuart's Excruciatingly Perfect Weddings.
