In these sharp and humorous essays, columnist Patricia Pearson takes us on a hilarious tour of our twenty-first-century obsessions and distractions. Pearson plumbs every facet of modern life, marriage, and motherhood, and her wry brand of wisdom is a refreshing and long-awaited release from our confusing and often contradictory world. Patricia Pearson is a frequent contributor to USA Today and the author of the novel Playing House. Her work has appeared in the New York Times, the New York Observer, the Guardian, and Redbook, among other publications, and she won the Arthur Ellis Award in 1997 for best nonfiction crime book, When She Was Bad. She recently moved from Toronto to the boreal forest outside Montreal with her husband and two children. "Pearson’s writing is side-splittingly funny...but amid the debris of the near-disasters perpetrated by her children, there’s a tender mother hanging on to her identity at all costs."-Albany Times Union "Patricia Pearson holds little back as she admits to myriad foibles as a woman and a parent and a wife, and as she confesses her great puzzlement with so many accepted societal ’norms.’ Not only did I giggle to myself throughout this book, but in spite of all her self-described flaws, I came out on the other end knowing one thing for certain: I want to be more like her."-Muffy Mead-Ferro, author of Confessions of a Slacker Mom
