Stay At Home Moms and Career Moms Face Off On Their Choices, Their Lives, Their Families


This classic anthology edited by Leslie Morgan Steiner, takes a frank, surprising and refreshing look at American motherhood from 26 different perspectives. Contributors include Pulitzer Prize-winnerJane Smiley, Terry Pinksy, Susan Cheever, and Anne Sarnoff.


Leslie’s tongue-in-cheek essay, “I Hate Everybody” was lauded by Katie Couric on the Today Show and in Business Week Magazine.

Reviews appeared in Newsweek, Vanity Fair, Atlantic Monthly, O, Parents, Self, Child, Parenting, and in newspapers across the country. Leslie was inundated with personal letters, including this one:

“Your essay has made me break down and openly cry over my broccoli cheddar soup. I’m mortified, but so grateful to find such a true description of motherhood. I’ll be looking for more of your work, and sharing it with friend. Thank you so much.”
