The Meat and Potatoes of Life : My True Lit Com
by Lisa Smith Molinari




Overview -
"A wry and lighthearted journey through the seasons of family life." --W. Bruce Cameron, #1 New York Times bestselling author of A Dog's Purpose

Applying her wit and humor to marriage and family life, award-winning columnist Lisa Smith Molinari shares her real-life family's humorous coming of age story, from marriage through raising kids to empty nest. Written in episodes, contained in seasons, her memoir is a sitcom for book lovers

Lisa leaves her law career to become a navy wife and Supermom, but somewhere between "I do" and "deploying again," waves of chaos threaten to overtake her. She has a husband who knows his chardonnay but can't identify a Phillips-head screwdriver, three quirky kids with their own agendas, a perpetually shedding dog, and a minivan full of cold french fries. Will she survive the endless minutiae of modern family life, or will she end up on the laundry room floor eating chocolate frosting out of a can?

"... hilariously honest, beautifully engaging, and vividly written ... A must-read." --Gina Barreca, author of They Used to Call Me Snow White ... But I Drifted

"This is a wonderful look inside the kind of family we all want to invite home to dinner." --Amy Newmark, editor-in-chief, Chicken Soup for the Soul

"... engaging stories that resonate ... pure Erma Bombeck ..." --Teri Rizvi, founder and director of the Erma Bombeck Writers' Workshop

"Molinari writes about her naval officer husband, their three children and her own foibles with love, warmth and humor." --Jerry Zezima, nationally syndicated humorist and author

"... wholesome and heartwarming and humorous. She weathers deployments, complete upheavals of life and location, childhood illnesses, devastating diagnoses, loneliness, toddlerhood, empty nests, sullen teenagers, and everything life throws at her with humor and good grace ..." --Lori B Duff, author of You Know I Love You Because You're Still Alive

"How is it possible to blend belly-shaking laughs with poignancy? ... Calcium never did this much for my funnybone " --Suzette Martinez Standring, award-winning author of The Art of Opinion Writing
