In this wickedly witty "momoir," Los Angeles writer Schickel chronicles her misadventures in parenting, beginning with a candid account of the pregnancy from hell as her embryo grows from the size of a pinhead to the size of Marlon Brando, and the toll it takes on her body, if not her spirit.
She's been dubbed "Erma Bombeck in leather." In this wickedly witty "momoir," reminiscient of Susan Reinhardt's Not Tonight Honey Los Angeles writer Erika Schickel chronicles her misadventures in parenting, beginning with a candid account of the pregnancy from hell as her embryo grows from the size of a pinhead to the size of Marlon Brando, and the toll it takes on her body, if not her spirit. Whether revealing a secret loathing of her de rigeur mommy minivan or her valiant efforts to squeeze into a tight dress to rock out at a Patti Smith concert, Schickel's irreverent and irresistible voice will appeal not only to women, but to anyone who's done time in a modern American family.
