Breeder: Real-Life Stories from the New Generation of Mothers

Breeder: Real-Life Stories from the New Generation of Mothers Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

They've been told that they are not old enough, not responsible enough, not financially stable enough. They've been asked why: Why now, why ever, and when are you going to stop? They've wiped noses and waited tables, designed websites and packed lunches. They've mixed minivans with murals, tattoos with breastfeeding, band practice with the PTA.

They're breeders.

In this groundbreaking anthology, Ariel Gore and Bee Lavender ask real mamas to take up where The Mother Trip leaves off, creating a space where Gen-X moms can dish, laugh, cry, scream and laugh--where no two essays are alike but every story carries the mark of what's real.

With its strength, humor and wisdom, this collection is a must-read for every young mother, and for anyone who wants a peek into the mind and spirit behind those bleary eyes.

Review:

"Some chapters are poignant (Beth Kohl Feinerman's lament about not being able to conceive after taking birth control pills for years), while others are very funny (Kimberly Bright's comparisons of a toddler to a psychotic boyfriend). The writers are self-satisfied but honestly so; here are women who chose to follow their dreams without trading on others." Library Journal

Review:

"Jennifer Savage thoughtfully recounts her journey from being 22-year-old single mom and punk rocker to a married mother of three learning to surf. Other stories are also unusual, but less reflective." Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

The author of "The Mother Trip" and "The Hip Mama Survival Guide" offers a humorous and moving collection of essays examining motherhood from a Generation X perspective. Illustrations & charts.

Synopsis:

In this ground-breaking anthology, Ariel Gore and Bee Lavender ask real moms — from Web site designers to tattoo-clad waitresses — to laugh, cry, scream, and shout about motherhood. Allison Crews fights to have a voice and be recognized as a teen mother. Angela Morrill eschews both doctors and midwife and gives birth at home. Kimberly Bright draws compelling comparisons between “raising a toddler and having a psychotic boyfriend.” For every young mom, Breeder offers inspiration, strength, wisdom, and humor. Contributors include Allison Crews, Beth Lucht, Ayun Halliday, Katie Granju, Peri Escarda, Allison Abner, and Kimberly Bright.
