Reviews

"I absolutely loved this memoir and could not put it down! It's incredibly clever; Martin uses anthropology to analyze Upper East mothers, and it's astonishingly illuminating. Somehow, Martin manages to be caustically perceptive but also generous, funny, moving, and erudite all at the same time. This is one of the most fascinating books I've read in a long time."--Amy Chua, Yale Law Professor and author of Battle Hymn of the Tiger Mother and The Triple Package
"Think privileged NYC wives are another species? Martin goes undercover in this dishy memoir and reminds us that we all have something in common."--Glamour
"Amusing...incisive...a wryly entertaining guide to this rarefied subculture."--The Economist
"Any population is fair game for anthropological research, so why not the super-rich, super-thin, and oh-so-well-dressed mothers of New York's Upper East Side?... Illuminating and fun."--BookPage
