This collection of essays observes the perils of motherhood, wifehood, selfhood, and other assorted challenges. Since its publication in 1957, it has sold millions of copies and has been adapted into a Broadway play, a film, a TV series, and now an audiobook. Jean Kerr's parodies of the clichéd 1950s prescription for glamorous or maternal feminine behavior still resonate today as we enter the 21st century. Download and start listening now!

    " This is a book of essays I picked up at a small-town library book sale in Oregon. Most of the essays are on motherhood. The book and the author's life are the basis for the Doris Day classic by the same title. Many essays on motherhood get sappy, or sarcastic, or long-suffering. Jean Kerr got it just right. I would have loved to have been a visitor in her home. I'll definitely look for more essay compilations by her. "

    " This was a funny book, though the references in it are outdated and many unknown by myself. Still the humor came through fine - especially about parenting. A good light, fast read for a few chuckles. "

    " This contains funny stories about raising kids, motherhood, and life. Even funnier is Shirley Jackson's "Life Among the Savages". "

    " My mom always had this sitting around on one bookcase or another when I was growing up. So of course I eventually read it, the way you do when you're a kid and you read whatever the folks have just to see what it's all about. "
