by Adam Mansbach
Hardcover, 32 pages
"Mansbach hit exactly the right nerve for exhausted parents who were ready to throw their hands up in the air."
--Did You Know?
"F**k, Now There are Two of You, seems brilliantly aimed at skewering the frustrating family dynamic of suddenly having two children to deal with instead of just one. Being an American family of four can be tough as shit, and but thankfully, the 'f**k' book series is here to help."
Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles in Go the Fuck to Sleep and You Have to Fucking Eat--the often-imitated, never-duplicated pair of New York Times bestsellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humor books for parents. But what could possibly be left?
Parents--new, old, expectant, and grand--of multiple children already knew the answer. Adam discovered it for himself by having two more kids, less than two years apart.
Fuck, Now There Are Two of You is a loving monologue about the new addition to the family, addressed to a big sibling and shot through with Adam's trademark profane truth-telling. Gorgeously illustrated and chock-full of unspoken sentiments channeled directly from the brains of parents worldwide, Fuck, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one.
As you probably know by now, you shouldn't read it to a child.
