Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

It's been over a decade since Ariel Gore, in a caffeine-induced brainstorm, invented Hip Mama as her senior project in college. The zine that has grown up alongside Gore's daughter, has covered subjects from weaning to home schooling with a political edge and a puckish sense of humor. The Essential Hip Mama captures the heart of a decade's worth of earthy, honest, soulful parenting — and topics from circumcision to dating, abortion to the (mistaken) belief that "mothers don't fart." Gore has gathered in one volume the whispers and conversations heard in homes, on playgrounds, and in coffeehouses around the country.

Reassuring and hopeful, The Essential Hip Mama is a brilliant testament that one becomes an "expert" simply through the act of mothering, echoing Gore's own words, "Whenever I've needed parenting advice, I've put out a call for submissions." This paperback original offers the most hilarious and heart-wrenching essays from ten years of this quintessential alternative-parenting bible.

Review:

"Hip Mama explores the real stuff of parenting with plenty of love and humanity." Utne Reader
