To Hell with All That: Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Having so many choices, Caitlin Flanagan maintains, has torn women away from what many of them want most: to raise a family and run a household. It's a nearly heretical statement today, and, like so many of the fresh ideas put forth in Flanagan's hilarious, entertaining, and provocative book, it might make some readers angry but it will also make them think.

Review:

"At heart, To Hell With All That is an attempt to understand, commemorate and legitimize her mother's life as a housewife and nurse....If it seems as if Flanagan wants to turn back the clock to an era of capable and solicitous homemakers, you can understand why." New York Times

Review:

"At times amusing, and more often intensely irritating....One's sympathy is roused only as Flanagan makes a strong case for the importance of a mother's full-time love and support for her children." Library Journal
