You Have to Fucking Eat

Adam Mansbach

The sunrise is golden and lovely, The birds chirp and twitter and tweet, You woke me and asked for some breakfast, So why the fuck won’t you eat?

MANSBACH IS BACK!!! THIS TIME HE’S STAYING FOR DINNER

From the author of the international bestseller GO THE FUCK TO SLEEP comes a book about the other great parental frustration: getting your little angel to eat something that even vaguely resembles a normal meal.

Profane, loving and deeply cathartic, YOU HAVE TO FUCKING EAT breaks the code of child-rearing silence, giving new, old, grand- and expectant parents a much-needed chance to laugh about a universal problem.*


*(You probably shouldn’t read it to your children.)
