All the Dishes You’ll Need to Make from the Day You Say “I Do” Until Death (or Divorce) Do You Part

The “recipes” in this fabulous fifties faux cookbook are perfect for you, the busy, overextended, and occasionally conflicted modern wife.

- Beans ’n’ Weenies of Sexual Tension
- Midlife Stress-Stuffed Cabbage
- Control-Freak Cookies
- Soufflé of Fallen Expectations
- A Fairly Satisfactory Family Stew
Though she grills societal norms with gleeful relish, Nava Atlas never loses sight of marriage’s simple, loving rewards. The result is a feast of retro art, sly wit, and cultural commentary. No woman will be able to read this without thinking of five friends she must share it with! Published by Simon and Schuster.
