The Grass Is Always Greener Over the Septic TankeBook - 2013
Erma Bombeck takes on the unforgiving frontier of American suburbia For years, the Bombecks have heard rumors of a magical land called Suburbia where the air is clean, the grass is trimmed, and children don & rsquo;t risk getting mugged on their walk to school. After watching their friends flee the city for subdivided utopias like Bonaparte & rsquo;s Retreat and Mortgage Ma & ntilde;ana, Erma and her family load up their belongings and cry, & ldquo;Station wagons ... ho! & rdquo; But life on the suburban frontier is not as perfect as they had hoped. The trees are stunted, the house is cramped, and there & rsquo;s no grass at all. But the Bombecks will make do, for they are suburbanites now & mdash;the last true pioneers! This ebook features an illustrated biography of Erma Bombeck including rare images and never-before-seen documents from the author & rsquo;s estate.
