Introduction

Delightfully smart and heartbreakingly poignant, Allison Pearson’s smash debut novel has exploded onto bestseller lists as “The national anthem for working mothers.” Hedge-fund manager, wife, and mother of two, Kate Reddy manages to juggle nine currencies in five time zones and keep in step with the Teletubbies. But when she finds herself awake at 1:37 a.m. in a panic over the need to produce a homemade pie for her daughter’s school, she has to admit her life has become unrecognizable. With panache, wisdom, and uproarious wit, I Don’t Know How She Does It brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of every working mom.

I struggled to get through this book. I found the plot to have little substance and I found the main character to be exhausting to read about. It seemed to go nowhere. :-(

I liked the book. Some of the characters were too much like caricatures. It provided for a lot of interesting discussion among our group of stay-at-home & working moms.
