The author of the hit column 'Ask a Clean Person' offers a hilarious and practical guide to cleaning up life's little emergencies Life is filled with spills, odors, and those oh-so-embarrassing stains you just can't tell your parents about. And let's be honest- no one is going to ask Martha Stewart what to do when your boyfriend barfs in your handbag. Thankfully, Jolie Kerr has both staggering cleaning knowledge and a sense of humor. With signature sass and straight talk, Jolie takes on questions ranging from the basic - how do I use a mop? - to the esoteric - what should I do when bottles of homebrewed ginger beer explode in my kitchen? My Boyfriend Barfed in My Handbag proves that even the most nightmarish cleaning conundrums can be solved with a smile, the right supplies, and a little music. 'Jolie Kerr really cuts through the grease and grime with her new book. I do what she tells me to do.' Amy Sedaris 'Jolie Kerr is unique among great, funny writers in that she isn't a repulsive slob.' Drew Magary, author of Someone Could Get Hurt and The Postmortal 'I was a huge filthy pig - and then Jolie happened to me. I used to live like an animal in cage; I was completely helpless and hapless when it came to pretending to be human. Now I can actually have people in my home, instead of just insects and terrible smells! Jolie Kerr is the painless adult supervision I always needed but was afraid to ask for.' Choire Sicha, author of Very recent History
