From "the funniest writer in America," a book about cooking and cleaning for people who don't know how to do those things and aren't about to learn (The Wall Street Journal). In addition to debunking popular myths about bachelors (they are in fact not creatures known to hang around the house in silk smoking jackets, sipping brandy from oversized snifters), #1 New York Times-bestselling author P. J. O'Rourke offers some useful advice about housekeeping-or how best to avoid it-in this priceless guide. For example: "Every month or so, take the curtains down-and throw them away." In the inimitable and irreverent style that has made him one of America's most popular humorists, O'Rourke. provides an essential guide to the practical business of living in the modern world and proves that "Camus had it all wrong about the myth of Sisyphus-it's not symbolic of life, just housekeeping." "To say that P. J. O'Rourke is funny is like saying that the Rocky Mountains are scenic-accurate but insufficient." -Chicago Tribune
