Description

Editorial Reviews Review "The author, also referred to as "the old poop," shoots of one-liners like a souped-up BB gun, and the wife, a.k.a. Big Red, matches him tit for tat." - Kirkus Reviews, April 15, 1978 From the Inside Flap Mirth and madness reign supreme in William C. Anderson's high-flying comedy of a middle-aged man's return to college. His children having all left home (hence the title), our hero struggles with a wild, restless feeling. His sympathetic wife takes control, dissuades him from flying across the country in a balloon, and the couple moves to San Diego where he enrolls in college. Once in the swing of college days, Anderson happily makes friends with many of the students, gets involved with their love lives, literary ambitions, political causes, and their troubles with the law. He marches on a picket line and sponsors one of the contestants in a hilarious bathtub race. The novel touches upon a topic largely ignored: what does a couple do when their kids have fled the nest and retirement age approaches? The Andersons saw two options: to get a hammock and swing themselves to death or to regird their loins and charge the golden years with all flags flying. They chose the second. The pace is steady, and the comedy is steady too, yet Anderson is at times tender and genuinely moving. Witty and warm, WHEN THE OFFSPRING HAVE SPRUNG has all the freshness and ease of the best Anderson books.

1978, 1st, Crown Publishers, NY. Hardcover novel / humor, 247 pages. William C. Anderson is famous for his funny fiction and unique non-fiction.
