"In the Brooks family, Papa may rule with an iron fist ... but Mama's about to slap him down with her open hand. Tired of being told what to do and when to do it, she goes to war! Swapping her old housedress for army-green duds and combing her tidily coiffed head into a ceiling-scraping 'fro, she takes to the roof on strike ... until her husband ... agrees to meet her bill of rights."--Container.
