Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Hailed by many as Erma Bombeck's heir apparent, Jennifer Moses — journalist, essayist, prizewinning short story writer, and mother of three — brilliantly transforms the mundane into the hilarious in her no-holds-barred record of a year in the life — and the kitchen — of a modern-day mom.

Writing about the year in which her twins were born, her mother was diagnosed with cancer, and her husband decided to change careers, Moses regales readers with funny anecdotes and gut-wrenchingly true pictures of the chaos and joys of family life. Capturing the essence of motherhood today in all of its complexities and contradictions, this true-to-life story (that reads like a novel) dares to say out loud what moms secretly think.

Synopsis:

This journalist, essayist, prize-winning short story writer, and mother of three brilliantly transforms the mundane into the hilarious in her no-holds-barred record of a year in the life of a modern-day mom--from the birth of her twins to her husband's career change.
