Description: Calvin Trillin begins his wise and charming ruminations on family by stating the sum total of his child-rearing advice: "Try to get one that doesn't spit up. Otherwise you're on your own". Suspicious of any child-rearing theories beyond "Your children are either the center of your life or they're not", Trillin has clearly reveled in the role of family man -- writing songs like "Uncle Max's Kids Are Gross, Creepy, Dumb, and Yucky" for family movie musicals, marching in the local Halloween parade in his favorite ax-murderer's mask even after his daughters had grown up and moved away, and changing diapers in the knowledge that otherwise he might be robbing himself of the opportunity to say, during a stressful family conversation fifteen or twenty years down the road, "I changed your diapers!" Acknowledging the special perils to the privacy of people living with a writer who occasionally remarks, "I hope you're not under the impression that what you just said was off the record", Trillin deals with the subject of family in a way that is loving, honest, and wildly funny.
