Between Interruptions -- My First Review

Yesterday, my mother (yes my mom -- she is more vigilant than I am about finding these things), found my first book review for Between Interruptions where my contribution was also reviewed.

"Estee Klar-Wolfond writes eloquently about her autistic son, Adam, in The Perfect Child. 'There is no other normal but the normal we create for ourselves,' she says -- and we believe her."

While The Perfect Child reflects how I feel about Adam and how we have come to find our own perfection, I hope to continue to convey our journey honestly, and perhaps a little provocatively, as I write on. A journey is made up of bumps, falls and epiphanies after all, and maybe, just maybe, it might mean something to someone else at the end of the day.

You can purchase Between Interruptions from Amazon.com.

Did you catch The Current last Monday?

"So how seriously should we take this genre ("Mommy Lit") if that's indeed what it is and the political messages it may or may not contain? Leanne Delap is a mother of two and a contributor to a new anthology called Between Interruptions: Thirty Women Tell the Truth About Motherhood. She's also a fashion writer and columnist for The Globe and Mail. She was in our Toronto studio."
