Publisher Description

It’s hard being a person, especially in a family, and no one knows that better than stand-up comedian, family man, and A Prairie Home Companion head writer and performer, Tom Papa.

How do you deal with a life filled with a whole host of characters and their bizarre, inescapable behavior? Especially when you’re related to them? Tom Papa is here to help you make sense of it all. Your Dad Stole My Rake is a hilarious and warm audiobook that saws deep into every branch of the family tree and uncovers the most bizarre and surprisingly meaningful aspects of our lives. He exposes everyone, from crazy aunts with mustaches, grandparents who communicate by yelling, and uncles who use marijuana as a condiment.

Among the topics covered:

- Tiger Mom v. Ice-Cream Mom

- Stop Trying to be Cool

- In Defense of Family Vacations

- No Fighting Before Coffee

- Least Popular Baby Names

- Wife Lie Detector

- Your Cat Thinks You’re Too Needy

Anyone who has a family, grew up in a family, or has spent time with another human being will love this audiobook.
