The Mother Zone
Love, Sex, and Laundry in the Modern FamilyBook - 1992
Despite the number of parenting books flooding the marketplace, Marni Jackson discovered she wasn't prepared when she became a mother at the age of thirty-seven. Nights without sleep, steeped in equal parts love, anxiety and bodily fluids, combined with the most intense tenderness warring against a sea-change of self forced her to ask the question: why didn't anybody tell me it would be like this? A national bestseller when it was first published, The Mother Zone remains fresh and relevant today, as Jackson gives us a touching and excruciatingly funny companion to help anyone survive the terra incognita of modern motherhood. From the Hardcover edition.
