“I have wonderful news for you, darling. A little brother or sister is coming – what fun! As for me, my life's pretty much fucked now. Because two's a million more kids than one.”
The latest in the New York Times bestselling series by Adam Mansbach: this time, with double the trouble
It turns out that two is a million more kids than one.
Adam Mansbach famously gave voice to two of parenting’s primal struggles in Go the Fuck to Sleep and You Have to Fucking Eat. Now Fuck, Now There Are Two of You tackles a new addition to the family and all the fears and frustrations attendant to the simple, math-defying fact that two is a million more kids than one.
As you probably know by now, you shouldn’t read it to a child.

“An instantly recognisable and timeless theme tune for bleary-eyed parents everywhere – a hymn to the horrors of bedtime. Beautifully crafted, rhythmical, affectionate, profane and searingly honest, it is very funny”
“A gleeful howl of blasphemy … for the exhausted parent, nudged to the brink of sanity by lack of sleep, GTFTS is more than a reason to snigger – it’s a gesture of compassion”
“Nothing has driven home a certain truth about my generation, which is approaching the apex of its childbearing years, quite like this deranged book”
