About the Author

Darcy Lockman is a former journalist turned psychologist. Her first book, Brooklyn Zoo, chronicled the year she spent working in a city hospital's psychiatric ward. Her writing has also appeared in The New York Times and the Washington Post, among others. She lives with her husband and daughters in Queens.


"The only way All the Rage could be a better Mother's Day gift would be for partners to actually read it before giving it. Darcy Lockman does an expert job of excavating and examining all the complaints we have and injustices we feel, and then putting them into a context that feels completely fresh. She makes the case for talking about parenting and division of labor well before you begin raising children--and if you're already a parent, it would be impossible not to recognize yourself in these pages." -- Kimberly Harrington, author of Amateur Hour

"How far we have not come! By saying what too often goes unsaid, Darcy Lockman delivers a thoughtful, timely, and bracing analysis of unfairness on the home front that is a boon to those whose dreams of an equal partnership have been dashed on the rocks of night feedings and mothers-only PTAs." -- Ada Calhoun, author of Wedding Toasts I'll Never Give

"Darcy Lockman delves into the baffling inequity of domestic life in this well-researched and deeply personal book. Crucially, she doesn't just ask, 'How did we get here?' but goes even further with 'What can we do about it?' Lockman calls on both men and women to question gender entitlements, actively negotiate family life, and commit to fairness. Thoughtful and thought-provoking . . . there were many times when I was reading this book that I found myself nodding and saying 'Yes.' A worthy addition to a long-overdue conversation." -- Jancee Dunn, author of How Not to Hate Your Husband After Kids
