 About the Book 

Born an only child in the Soviet Union and raised in Australia, Susanna is educated at an Orthodox Jewish School, raised by a somewhat angry Soviet-style father, a brilliant yet domineering mother, and her borderline personality grandmother BabushkaMoreBorn an only child in the Soviet Union and raised in Australia, Susanna is educated at an Orthodox Jewish School, raised by a somewhat angry Soviet-style father, a brilliant yet domineering mother, and her borderline personality grandmother Babushka (she of the ever-roaming eyebrow.) Cursed with a black depression from childhood, but blessed with a genius sense of humor, a decade later, she becomes a comedy star in Australia. Seeking the American Dream (and to piss off her parents) she travels to NYC for fame and fortune, where she falls in love with the greatest city in the world, but finds that the romance is one-sided. In the Big Apple, she samples the local circumcised offerings, hangs out with prostitutes (not Jewish), lives with Kenny Kramer (yes, the real Kramer from Seinfeld), and marries the rarest of creatures from her Australian homeland - a large Jew. Eventually she finds herself living that fabled American Dream in Malibu, California, the mother of Irish Twinboys, but in typically self-destructive style, attempts to throw it all away by running away from home. Only when committed to lock-down psych facility does our heroine finally learn that she may not be as crazy as she thinks she is, to stop trying to control the universe, and that children are actually useful, as they may keep you from killing yourself.
