Ups & Downs of Being a Wife


Marriage is a great institution but who the hell wants to live in an institution? Well, actually wives do. But what is a woman letting herself in for when she says, 'I do' and how long will it be before she discovers her partner isn't perfect? Or, worse, he discovers she isn't perfect?

This is a gift book featuring more than 120 cartoons by Private Eye's Tony Husband. From whether it's advisable to share a joint account, or what to do if he forgets your birthday, or how you react when your child's first word is 'Dadda' rather than 'Mamma', Tony directs you through the minefield that is marriage. Even if you start off by sinking into his arms, there's no need to end up with your arms in the sink.

Tony Husband is a celebrated cartoonist with cartoons published regularly in The Times and Private Eye. He is a regular comic on the UK comedy tour and counts the Monty Python team, Steven Fry and Griff Rhys-Jones as friends.
