From "Putting Things Away" to "The Marriage Almanac" (not to mention the pedantic "Index," in itself a comic wonder), Stanley Crawford gives the married, the unmarried, and the formerly married a classic satire on all the sanctimonious marriage manuals ever produced. Starting with the complete title, Some Instructions to My Wife Concerning the Upkeep of the House and Marriage, and to My Son and Daughter Concerning the Conduct of Their Childhood, a boorish narrator sets down some seventy-three pieces of advice to his wife, young son, and two-year-old daughter, intended to foster and maintain domestic tranquility in an age of anxiety. Taken literally, our neo-Victorian head of the house is a male chauvinist pig of sorts, but what reader would deny that the sources of Crawford's satire run deep in the American grain?

The Good Spy Wife is a story of aging FBI agent, Gunter Martini, as told by his wife, Bootsie. The saga begins with her suspicions that the next-door neighbor, Alexander, is a Russian agent. The reader is drawn into the drama as the story explodes along with the cigarette boat when Gunter dares to venture out for a boat ride to Bomb Island on the 50,000 acres Lake Murray on the night of a impending hurricane. His drowning is dubious, as no body floats to the surface. The wife trusts in God and believes that he is alive. When he reappears later in the Soviet Union he invites his wife to join him as he works toward an assignment involving the elimination of the American president, as the Soviet country believes the President of the United States and his democratic ideals stand in the way of progress for the Soviet Union. He must die, as the current leadership in America is an affront for growth of the new Russia. Set during the Cold War in the late 1980s, Bootsie and Gunter struggle with separation during difficult times in their own marriage. Bootsie grows spiritually through the unexplained meeting of strangers who appear to her as angels, and through drawing on her own strengths when alone. Ultimately, after many twists and turns of the story, the couple realizes that God is the only help for the frailty of their lives, and each makes plans to rebuild his or her life around their new beliefs. However, will this turn out to be the happy conclusion? One can only discover this knowledge through reading the book.

Never Hang Wallpaper With Your Wife is a humorous look, from a guy's point of view, at home renovations, decorating and home repairs, and how it can affect the relationship of a husband and wife. It is liberally sprinkled with handy tips, do-it-yourself information and laced with humorous anecdotes. Hammar, now retired and living in British Columbia, was one of Canada's earliest home improvement experts. The experience and knowledge, gained over fifty-two years in the field, is shared with you in a way sure to make you laugh as you learn. The information in this book is not only from Hammar's experiences but also from that of friends, family and his audiences on radio, television and at home shows. There are dozens of innovative handy tips and ideas on how-to and how-not-to. Many of these tips are accompanied by clear illustrations of the project. When asked if he really is an expert in the DIY field he says, "According to one dictionary an expert is 'one who has great knowledge or skill in a particular area'". But, in the words of my former wife, "In the case of Michael Hammar, I think an expert is a person who has done something wrong so many times, has finally found the right way, and now wants to be paid to tell people about it". This book is funny and, at the same time, very informative with down to earth stories and ideas. Avoid the "how-not-to" frustrations and chuckle at one man's struggle with home repairs and renovations. See how one "guy" deals with the "boss" on the job. You will surely identify with some of Hammar's experiences and laugh as you learn.
