J. L. Black is Erma Bombeck on coke. She’s a nutty suburban soccer Mom, a bipolar standup comedian, a manic confessional essayist. And I honestly laughed out loud several times while reading this on public transportation.

Be warned: this book is not for those committed to political correctness. I guarantee there is something here to offend everyone, from liberal to conservative from religious to atheist. Yes, even I was offended occasionally. But not terribly offended, more of a shake-my-head-that-is-really-not-a-nice-thing-to … oh, but what the hell, it’s funny. I won’t spoil any punch lines, but my favorite story involved her explaining why she would never be able to eat an Oreo Cookie again (hint: it involves an extremely obese woman). Another favorite was a description of a suburban women’s sex toy party. Beyond the wacky hi-jinks Black describes in these stories (that she claims are true), IUTTIWNBNITPFT was, strangely enough, an eye-opening look at some aspects of an “average” suburban family’s life. And by “average,” I mean “average shitballs crazy.”
