God Grants His First Divorce
And other absurdities of contemporary times
by Dawn Davis

What does a technology-dependent family need to bring on a canoe trip? What happens when teachers work remotely while their students are in the school building? Who is the real expert on cleaning out a cluttered basement? Each comedy sketch in this collection takes a simple idea and plays it out to outlandish proportions. A hands-on audio course that teaches its students how to install a toilet while they’re driving. A timeshare company that offers part ownership of a variety of cats with peculiar needs and personalities. Instructions for installing radiant floor heat that includes a large bottle of Scotch and a case of Kleenex on the list of items needed and takes 189 days to complete. Jump into the absurdity, ridiculousness, and hilarity of these stories, and it will soon become clear why God grants his first divorce.

"Delightfully quirky vignettes that offer lighthearted approaches to everyday problems." -Kirkus Reviews
