Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0573609802, Paperback)

Comedy / 2m, 4f, 1f child / 2 Ints. An acerbic comedy by the famed cartoonist and author of KNOCK KNOCK and LITTLE MURDERS. It's about a middle-aged journalist who has, at last, grown up - only to find he's trapped in a world of emotional infants. "A laceratingly funny play about the strangest of human syndromes - the love that kills rather than comforts. Feiffer's vision seems merciless, but its mercy is the fierce comic clarity with which he exposes every conceivable permutation of smooth-tongued cruelty ... Feiffer constructs a fiendishly complex machine of reciprocal irritation in which Jake (the journalist), his parents, his wife and his sister carp, cavil, harass, hector and finally attack one another with relentless trivia and dedonate deeply buried resentments like emotional land mines ... This farce is Feiffer's exclusive specialty, and it's never been more harrowingly hilarious." - Newsweek. "Savagely funny." - N. Y. Times. "A compelling, devastating evening of theatre ... the first adult play of the season." - Women's Wear Daily.
