Mary Mary Quite: On Raising Children (And Other Mind-Altering Substances)

MMQ and old Hunk raised five kids, assorted grandkids, two cats, three dogs, rodents galore, all kinds of reptiles, a boatload of fish, brain coral, and a Mexican tarantula named Mad Max. It was crazy. But their drug of choice has always been laughter.


“Hilarious! I’ve read the entire book three times, and each time I found something new to appreciate. There are great messages in these stories, but they’re subtle. I didn’t realize I was picking them up until my third read.” MMQ’s literary doppelganger and fellow anglophile, Ruth. (Who is most-assuredly biased.)

“I looked at the illustrations with my two boys and we were in awe. They are flawless, emotional pieces that resonated with all three of us. And by flawless, I mean they are raw, in-depth snapshots of humanity. The writing is – in turn – a belly laugh and a sigh of relief, all mixed in with wonderful insight. Someone else gets it!” David’s pastor and honorary auntie, Karla. (And yes, bias is inevitable.)
