  • Why Moms Are Here

    People like to say, “I bet your mom is so excited to be a grandmother. What did she do when she found out you were having a baby?” “Oh. She immediately put her house on the market.” And they laugh. They laugh and laugh. “That would be so funny,” they chuckle. I don’t say anything. […]

    Virtual Book Tour: Devil in the Details: Scenes From an Obsessive Girlhood, by Jennifer Traig

She promises me that the copy of the book I received had a binding issue, and wasn’t intentionally off-center by one centimeter. The three borderline obsessive-compulsives […]
