The Meat and Potatoes of Life: In the News

It’s All Write with Suzette Standring

“Lisa captures family life from her eyes as a military spouse, who has an Erma Bombeck sensibility when it comes to wit and laughter. The book covers the evolution of Lisa and husband Francis from dating life to the parenting years, to being empty nesters in 264 pages, separated into ‘seasons.’ Dave Barry once said about humor writing that it is not enough to be amusing, you have to be laugh out loud funny, and The Meat and Potatoes of Life truly is.”

Applying her wit and humor to marriage and family life, award-winning columnist Lisa Smith Molinari shares her real-life family’s humorous coming-of-age story, from marriage through raising kids to empty nest, in her first book, The Meat and Potatoes of Life: My True Lit Com.

In Q and A with the author, Stars and Stripes features editor Kate Maisel writes “With chapter headings such as ‘Does This Baby Make My Husband’s Butt Look Big?’, ‘Lord of the Houseflies’ and ‘Fifty Shades of Mattress Shopping,’ Molinari excels in finding humor in relatable circumstances.”
