Having children transforms us - by the amazing power of our love for them and theirs for us, by the anger they are able to provoke in us, and because in order to be good parents to our children, we must admit we are no longer children ourselves. Susan Cheever, bestselling author, describes that transformation in passionate, compelling, moving prose. Raising a daughter, 18, and a son, 11, they have all survived divorce, blending families, issues at school, eating disorders, and alcoholism. Provocative, perceptive, wise and unflinchingly honest, this book is the touchstone for all parents who are doing the best they can. There is a very small bump at the top, and the jacket is lightly shelfworn at the bottom edges. ; 191 pages
