Home Ownership: welcome to your delightmare, is a funny look at the highs and lows of the American dream. The book is a celebration of home ownership; the joys and reality, the bumps and bruises. The home (specifically speaking, a free-standing house) is your shanty and castle. It provides shelter to hang a hat, love your children, and break bread with friends and family. As the home's owner, you possess both the pride and panic. The book is for new owners (or wannabes), and covers such fun topics (EEK!) as neighbors, real estate agents, and yard work. It is the perfect book to read while enjoying a Homeowner's Cocktail: a glass of chardonnay with ibuprofen.
