Still Life With Children
Richard Scrimger's hilarious musings on family life capture all the joys and frustrations peculiar to parenthood. Taking care of the kids will never be the same!
"Scrimger has a sweet, gentle, self-deprecating voice, and his love for his children permeates every page. He proudly wears his heart on his sleave, right next to the mustard stain."
- The Toronto Star
"Let me get this straight. Richard Scrimger is a stay-at-home dad who bakes cookies, looks after four children, dreams happily about stacks of clean, folded laundry, shops for tablesettings, and makes his kids' Hallowe'en costumes. I can't decide whether he should be killed or cloned. The fact that he's so funny may well save his life."
- Judith Timson (author of Family Matters)
"Frantic fun! Not for those into New Age meditations, house-husband and loving parent Richard Scrimger's adrenaline-injected prose tells the reader how he survived a year raising four rambunctious, bright kids. The kids win. Definitely a book for those of us who have experienced large family life with a nearly grown-up parent - or who wish we had."
- Wayson Choy (author of The Jade Peony)
