About the Author

Ayelet Waldman was born on December 11, 1964. She graduated from Wesleyan University in 1986 and from Harvard Law School in 1991. Before becoming a full-time writer, she worked at a New York law firm and as a federal public defender in California. She is the author of the Mommy-Track Mysteries mostrar mais series, Daughter's Keeper, Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, and Red Hook Road. In her essay Motherlove, which was published in Because I Said So: 33 Mothers Write about Children, Sex, Men, Aging, Faith, Race and Themselves, Waldman admitted that she loves her husband more than her children. Her book Bad Mother was written as a result of the negative reaction to her essay. She and Michael Chabon are co-editors of, Kingdom of Olives and Ash: Writers Confront the Occupation.

Fiction-Drama Child Dies em Name that Book (Novembro 2009)


This author is married to Michael Chabon. Apparently, she loves him more than her kids? (He /is/ is pretty good writer...)
LibrarianDest | outras 18 resenhas | Jan 3, 2024 |
Stupid story of shallow superficial girl marrying up and bitching about first world problems. What makes it worth reading: painfully accurate depictions of actual NYC life.
