Book Description

A Trip to the Hardware Store & Other Calamities by Barbara Venkataraman

The Indie Book of the Day for 17th of October, 2013!

Genre: Humor, Parenting

At 8,000 words, this collection of humorous essays explores such quirky topics as: disastrous home repairs, (“A Trip to the Hardware Store”), an unfortunate dinner party (“Dinner is Served”), the truth about lazy people (“Lazy Bones”), the weird life of a debt collector (“Your Account is Past Due”) and obsessions with gadgets (“Gadget Girl”). Other essays examine how surreal the aging process is (“Where Did the Time Go?”), why you shouldn’t judge a person by their job (“Beyond Belief”), and how to complicate simple transactions (“High Finance”). Like the author’s first work, “I’m Not Talking About You, Of Course…,” these essays will give your spirit a lift and leave you smiling.
