More Description

It's been over a decade since Ariel Gore, in a caffeine-induced brainstorm, invented "Hip Mama" as her senior project in college. The zine that's been called "fun and irreverent" by "USA Today, " "delightful" by "Glamour, " and "cutting-edge" by the "Chicago Tribune" has grown up alongside Gore's daughter, covering subjects from weaning to home schooling with a political edge and a puckish sense of humor. "The Essential Hip Mama" captures the heart of a decade's worth of earthy, honest, soulful parenting--and topics from circumcision to dating, abortion to the belief that "mothers don't fart." Gore has gathered in one volume the whispers and conversations heard in homes, on playgrounds, and in coffeehouses around the country. Reassuring and hopeful, "The Essential Hip Mama" is a brilliant testament that one becomes an "expert" simply through the act of mothering, echoing Gore's own words, "Whenever I've needed parenting advice, I've put out a call for submissions."
