Meet the women of American Housewife: they wear lipstick, pearls, and sunscreen, even when it’s cloudy. They casserole. They pinwheel. And then they kill a party crasher, carefully stepping around the body to pull cookies out of the oven. Vicious, fresh, and nutty as a poisoned Goo Goo Cluster, American Housewife is a delightfully unhinged collection of stories set in the dark world of domesticity that provides an uproarious, pointed commentary on womanhood.
