Rebecca Rose, whose husband has been acting aloof, is tempted by the attentions of a former celebrity flame. Marco Goldstein, saddled with two kids when his husband, Todd, is away on business, turns to anonymous sex for comfort. Danny Gottlieb, a screenwriter on the cusp of a big break, leaves his wife and children to pitch a film (and meet young women) in Los Angeles. Fallen sanctimommy Karen Bryan Shapiro, devastated by her husband’s infidelity and abandonment, attempts a fresh start with a hot single dad. And former A-list actress Melora Leigh plots a star turn on Broadway to revive her Hollywood career. As their stories intersect in surprising ways and their deceptions spiral out of control, they begin to question their beliefs about family, happiness, and themselves.

Equal parts moving and richly entertaining, Motherland is a fresh take on modern marriage that confirms Amy Sohn as one of our most insightful commentators on relationships and parenting in America today.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Keeps you hooked—and cackling—until its surprisingly resonant final lines.”


  • “Sohn provides more than a soupcon of sardonic pleasure…There’s lots of sex (with everyone but spouses), illicit pot-smoking, dubious career moves, hilarious social commentary and clever twists and turns in Motherland—making it a perfect last-minute beach read before fall arrives.”

    USA Today

  • “A summer-fun novel.”

    New York Daily News

  • “Smart…A satirical swipe at the Park Slope Crowd of parents reveals promiscuity, secrets, despair and, oh yes, child care.”

    Kirkus Reviews

Listener Opinions

    " Very fun, rather light, definitely worth a quick read. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 by Carol | 2/9/2014

    " Memorable for that fact that it contained some of the most immature, selfish, reprehensible characters ever, with hardly a redeeming quality among them. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 by Bethany | 2/8/2014

    " One of those books where you don't like anyone in it and feel no sympathy when they get their just desserts. "

    " Entertaining read but pretty fluffy. The namedropping and specificity of place and brands was both irritating and essential to setting the scene. In spite of being a light read, I ended up feeling pretty down by the end of the book. It's really more about struggles in marriage than about motherhood. "
