Literary Mama writing about the many faces of motherhood
LM discussed in San Francisco Chronicle

No comments

One of our Review editors, Joanne Hartman, altered me that Literary Mama had appeared in a July 24th San Francisco Chronicle article by Katherine Seligman titled "Ayelet, Unfiltered." The subtitle reads: "Berkeley writer Ayelet Waldman's bald honesty about putting her husband first made her a magnet for controversy. Would she take any of it back?"

Seligman interviewed me on the history of mother writing, and you can find me quoted in the article. You can read it here.

An interesting piece, Katharine Seligman. Thanks!
