The Other Mother : A wickedly honest parenting tale for every kind of family Hardback

Hardback

Description

'Hysterical, important, moving, wonderful' Sara PascoeI'm Jen Brister, stand-up comedian, middle-aged adolescent and, more recently, a mum.

But not that mum - I'm the other one. Confused? Let's back up a bit. Two years ago, my partner (a woman - we're not solicitors) gave birth to twins.

Yes. Yes. Already there's a lot to take in here: gay mums, twins, solicitors... (I know! Believe me, I'm still reeling myself.)Like every new parent, I had absolutely no clue what I was doing.

Add 'gay' and 'non-biological' to the mix and what do you get?

Not a weird box of detergent, but a panicked beige lesbian desperately googling, 'Will my babies love me?' at 3 a.m. This is a book for any parent who feels they don't fit the mould of a traditional 2.4 family.

Stand-up comedian Jen Brister takes a very funny, very honest look at life as a parent: from IVF awfulness to crying over the pages of sleep training manuals. As 'the other mother' she has the perfect vantage point for us to laugh and cry alongside her.
