Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting's primal struggles inGo the Fuck to Sleep andYou Have to Fucking Eat--the often-imitated, never-duplicated pair of New York Times best sellers that ushered in a new era of radical honesty in humor books for parents. But what could possibly be left?
Parents--new, old, expectant, and grand--of multiple children already knew the answer. Adam discovered it for himself by having two more kids, less than two years apart.
Fuck, Now There Are Two of You is a loving monologue about the new addition to the family, addressed to a big sibling and shot through with Adam's trademark profane truth-telling. Gorgeously illustrated and chock-full of unspoken sentiments channeled directly from the brains of parents worldwide,Fuck, Now There Are Two of You articulates all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one.
As you probably know by now, you shouldn't read it to a child.
