-Margaret Cho Love, Mom is a hilarious look at what happens when interfering, maddening, kvetching, querying, and loving moms push the `send' button. This is a great book for anyone who ever looked at her email inbox and said, `Oh, no--it's from my mom.'
-Amy Dickinson, author of The Mighty Queens of Freeville, "Ask Amy" syndicated advice columnist, and NPR contributor This book is hilarious and smart--a wittily organized collection that proves, without a doubt, that our moms are humankind's most natural comedians.
-Mike Albo, author of Hornito and The Underminer I'm much older than my computer--are you suggesting that the older something is, the more uselss it becomes Because that's what I'm hearing (although I'm not hearing it very well.....)
your old mom Yes, I am a pest, but I just looked at Iowa weather and it will be 5 below Tuesday night. Hope you have a hat with ears. Love you, Mom Sweet, funny, endearing, slightly technologically inept, and always just a little nagging, emails from mothers to their adult children are much more fun to read when it's somebody else's mother. PostcardsFromYoMomma.com is proof of that--when it launched, this repository of reader-submitted missives from Mom received more than 100,000 unique visitors in just the first two weeks. In Love, Mom, editors Doree Shafrir and Jessica Grose have assembled more than two hundred of the best never-before-seen submissions. From school, sex, technology, and appearance to health, work, holidays, and food--and complete with a selection of celebrity emails (including Oscar-winner Diablo Cody's mom on her daughter's "blob"), and sidebars throughout--Love, Mom is ultimately a reflection on how our moms are always our moms . . . no matter how the message is sent.
Jessica Grose is Managing Editor for Double X, Slate's site for women, and was formerly an editor at Jezebel.com. Her essays have appeared in the New York Times and Salon.com, among other places.
