Throw Granny off the Balcony and Other Short Stories

A humorous collection of real life short stories with a crazy cast of characters. From a father who has a habit of crashing every new car he buys, to a mother who throws dishes in the dumpster rather than washing them, to a sister who attributes her troubles to psychological boogers, and a ninety-five year old grandmother who thinks everyone is trying to drive her crazy, Throw Granny off the Balcony, is a wild ride. These characters, along with amorous peacocks, spouses, mothers-in-law, madwomen on the roof, flying horses, alligator loving Mafiosi, gypsies, jaguars and food (always more food) are a snapshot of what will perhaps be considered a golden era in human history.

This is a truly delightful collection of adventures taken from author Lily Temmer’s own life…and what fun, madcap adventures she’s had!! These short tales recount zany situations with over-the-top interesting characters (mostly real-life family members and friends). It’s more than just situational splendor, though. It’s the way the stories are written that brings a sense of whimsy and delight to the reader. I laughed out loud many times – and imagined the scenes as if I were actually there. It takes a skilled writer to experience a moment in time and capture the hilarity of it in words. I can’t wait until the next volume of stories emerges!
