The Bad Mother's Handbook is the story of a year in the lives of Charlotte, Karen, and Nan, none of whom can quite believe how things have turned out. Why is it all so difficult? Why do the most ridiculous mistakes have the most disastrous consequences? When are you too old to throw up in a flowerbed after too much vodka? When are you too young to be a mother? Both hilarious and wise, it is a clear-eyed look at motherhood - and childhood - in its many guises, from the moment the condom breaks to the moment you file for divorce or, more optimistically, from the moment you hear your baby's first cry to the moment you realize that there are as many sorts of mother as there are children, and that love sometimes is the most important thing of all.

I've now got a second copy of this book so I entered this one in the VBB and Cyzaki has chosen it. I'll be taking it along to the Uncon to pass on to her.

Thanks for the book, purplerosebud, it's one I've wanted to read for a while.

Journal Entry 5 by Cyzaki from Southam, Warwickshire United Kingdom on Wednesday, July 04, 2007
I really enjoyed this book. It's got a bit of everything in, from teenage pregnancy to child abuse to skeletons in the family closet, plus regular injections of humour care of a senile granny. It made me laugh in many places, and cry in a couple, and I think it sends a valuable message that whatever life throws at you it's your life so make the best of it (it generally turns out not too bad after all), and the grass isn't always greener on the other side.
