About the Author
Praise For Awkward Family Photos…
"This is the best book of embarrassing and strange photos of people who look like my family that I have ever seen."
"Being a test tube baby doesn't seem such a bad idea after looking at these folks. I laughed till it hurt. To paraphrase Tolstoy... every family is freaky in its own way. There's so much love here- but maybe a little more pain, or desperation, or bewilderment. I often feel slightly sad or guilty that I'm not closer with my own family- but looking at this bunch I sense we all have something in common and I'm far from being alone."
"Awkwardness has never looked so cool. Finally there's a book that celebrates the cringe-worthy family photo we all have buried in an album somewhere."
— Amanda Goldberg, New York Times bestselling author of Celebutantes
"Anything that both makes me laugh and think my family isn't so embarrassing deserves to be a book."
—Joel Stein, Time magazine columnist
"I wept with laughter fourteen times while reading this book and snorted aloud twice. I dare you to find a higher weep/snort ratio in any other publication."
—Karen McCullah Lutz, screenwriter of Legally Blonde and The Ugly Truth
"Awkward Family Photos is the funniest book that I've read in a long time. It reminds you that it's okay to laugh at yourself and celebrates the family that made you awkward in the first place."
—Mia Kirshner, The L Word
"Awkward Family Photos is absolutely hysterical, yet at the same time, it's a stunningly accurate photographic record of the late 20th century American family. Now I can be certain I was not alone in my awkwardness."
—Adam Herz, Writer, American Pie I, II, III
