I hope to expand both this article and Umma's family in the next few weeks, barring the possibility of life getting in the way. What's really scary is that I also just read the Australian chick-lit-with-a-murder-mystery-subtext novel Big Little Lies (very Desperate Housewives-ish, and the basis for a new HBO series), and in my mind I keep mixing up elements of BLL with the American portions of Household Gods. Some of the stock characters are basically the exact same thing between both books. I guess the divorce/soap opera/estrogen rage stuff in HG must be mostly Judith Tarr's work, although Harry Turtledove has been known to write similarly dippy characters, for example in Supervolcano.JonathanMarkoff (talk) 20:43, February 26, 2017 (UTC)
