In this essay collection of midlife cares and craziness, C. R. Yeager takes us on a Tilt-A-Whirl ride of suburbia with his wife and adopted Chinese daughter. The banshees, as he calls them, provide ample opportunity for wise buffoonery, wearing 'mankiller' shoes that could qdevour Simon Cowell, q playing with dolls that would frighten Godzilla, and generally diverting life into a mine shaft. En route he also turns his attention to modern inconveniences (smartass cars, feral pets) and homesteading (qA lunchbox has more storage than our houseq), mortality awareness (qwhacking you in the face like a rake you stepped onq), and in-laws that show up unannounced qas though returning from a stint in Uruguay.q Fractious and poignant, delighting in language and deploring contingency, Breakfast At Noon: Backwards in the 'Burbs is a dim sum of sweet and sour and very, very real. Adding to the fun are ten cartoons by award-winning illustrator Thomas Zahler.especially actuarial tables; (2) teaching him in a Ford crew cab dually pickup, the sort of vehicle that could tow Rhode Island out into the Atlantic ... At school, he gives presentations that make Pink Floyd concerts look like your fuse box blowing.
