Reviews

"Crisp, witty dispatches from the domestic front by a former wild child. . . . The author writes with an acerbic intellect, blending self-deprecation with reflective back-patting into cohesive life stories that are relatable and, thankfully, usually funny."
-"Kirkus"

"Kyran Pittman is a fresh new voice in non-fiction-honest, intimate, and thoroughly smart. Her self-perception and integrity make us cheer her on as she goes through her domestic trials-and at the same time feel confident that she will emerge from them unscathed. I highly recommend this book."
-Amy Sohn, author of "Prospect Park West"

"Kyran Pittman is a warm, honest, very funny writer. I loved her book."

"Kyran Pittman's searingly honest confessionals, and her expert wit, should serve as a model and inspiration for all the former 'bad girls' who've crossed over into motherhood."
-Neal Pollack, author of "Alternadad"
"[This is a] hilarious, searing essay collection. . . . [Pittman's] tales of modern motherhood are fearless and addictive."

"In this wry, warts-and-all memoir, "Good Housekeeping" contributing writer Kyran Pittman offers up snapshots from her life, and she is nothing if not very, very human. ...[Her] confessional tone is balanced with her clear affection for family life in all its messiness. Now a mommy of three, Pittman is just as passionate when writing about life in suburbia as when musing on postpartum sex...Being a mom isn't always (or even usually) glamorous, but Pittman recognizes the beauty of family life in this interesting, funny and fresh entry in the mommy memoir genre."
