MODERN FAMILY: Wit and Wisdom from America’s Favourite Family
By the writers of Modern Family
Touching on everything from motherhood and teenagers to siblings, school, and love, Modern Family:Wit and Wisdom from America’s Favourite Family is a collection of humour and wisdom, highlighting favourite moments, memories, and lessons that readers will learn from and laugh at in equal measures.
Each week, the families of Modern Family have something to learn. Sometimes it’s a lesson about parenting. Other times, it’s about surviving marriage — or getting along with the dreaded in-laws. But no matter what, the Dunphys and Pritchetts and Tucker-Pritchetts always find a fresh and incredibly funny way to teach us a little bit about life and love as well.
Each chapter in Modern Family includes an exclusive introduction by each family member — whether it’s Cameron telling you about the time he met Mitchell (‘His name was Mitchell, and the rest, as Pepper would say, is herstory’), or Claire discussing motherhood (‘Mothers have no excuse for not being better liars because they’re surrounded by the best lie instructors on Earth: their children’) — and some of the best quotes from the show, such as Gloria saying, ‘In my country there’s a saying that means “Love is just around the corner”. I come from a neighborhood with a lot of prostitutes.’ Or Phil’s wisdom on fatherhood: ‘I guess that’s the real circle of life. Your parents faked their way through it; you fake your way through it. And hopefully you don’t raise a serial killer.’
Modern Family will leave the show’s millions of fans laughing out loud at — and falling even more in love with — the funniest family on television.
