American Mom Motherhood Politics and Humble Pie

By Mary Kay Blakely
Married in the ’70s, Blakely expected to be the kind of mother society could admire. But, caught up in the women’s movement–and an increasingly chaotic world–she soon lost her innocence about “expert” wisdom and began to break the rules. With humor and insight, this acclaimed journalist explodes the myths of motherhood today. Algonquin, 1994.
