Here's Looking at You, Kids: The Crowded Romance of Mom and Dad

Hugh O'Neill, Author Prentice Hall $17.95 (207p) ISBN 978-0-13-201153-2
O'Neill's ( Daddy Cool ) sweet, tense, silly, moving story of his New York City family includes his children, Josh, five, and 22-pound Becca, with himself and his wife Jody in supporting roles: feeding and clothing the tyrannical two, applauding terrible kiddie jokes, buying costly toys, etc., all of which are parental efforts taken smugly for granted by the children. But if O'Neill sometimes thinks of himself as King Lear, the children more often fill their father and mother with a joy that makes them feel richer than Croesus. In his re-creation of the family's domestic life, the author shows that love can trivialize all problems. First serial to Parent's magazine and Men's Life. (May)
