We Need to Talk About The Conditions of My Imprisonment ...and other parenting stories - Michelle Tan
We Need to Talk About the Conditions of My Imprisonment ...and other funny parenting stories is a funny, quirky and original collection of short stories revolving around the less-than-favorable aspects of parenting.
If you've ever found yourself eating chocolate in the bathroom while hiding from your children, tearing your hair out as your bundle of sweetness and joy decorates the living room wall with their dinner for the umpteenth time, or pacing the floor, Zombie-like, as they cry the house down at three in the morning for reasons only they understand, then this is the book for you!
Compiled by Michelle Tan and containing contributions from some of the most popular writers from the parenting community, this book promises to be the humorous antithesis to all those 'How To Be A Perfect Mother' books out there.
We Need to Talk About the Conditions of My Imprisonment is released on 21st April 2018
