Lamentations of the Father

Ian Frazier, Author, Bruce Zick, Illustrator Westminster John Knox Press $17.95 (32p) ISBN 978-0-664-22238-3
Many readers will already be familiar with Ian Frazier's hilarious treatise Lamentations of the Father, which has been forwarded countless times on e-mail. Now, Westminster John Knox Press releases an illustrated version of Frazier's commandments to the sippy-cup generation, preserving the author's skillful appropriations of Deuteronomic language. (""Of the hoofed animals, broiled or ground into burgers, you may eat, but not in the living room. Of the cereal grains... and of all the cereals that are of bright color and unknown provenance you may eat, but not in the living room."") Frazier's creativity deserves more sophisticated art than is provided by illustrator Bruce Zick. ($10.95 32p ISBN 0-664-22238-2)
