Format: Paperback
Susie Bright, author of "On Sex, Motherhood, and Porn & Cherry Pie" has been called a genius, goddess, sorceress and a damned fine writer! This may all be true. but this book, a collection of her writings is fairly uneven. She is a great writer, but not all of the articles are worthy of this book.
Susie is apparently a well known ranking connoisseur of sex, porn, and physical expression. This is the first book of hers that I have read. She is quite entertaining, not at all disturbing or too sexually advanced. She is a writer of sexual overtones, telling us that whatever we enjoy is ok.
This novel was written over 12 years of her daughter Aretha's life. The first chapter is about Aretha and her reaction to her mother's job- writing about sex. They are excellent sand spell out the shame and then joy Aretha feels about her mom's choices.
The next five chapters titled "Who wants to be a sex guru?" are not as well done. She talks about Viagra, internships and nudist colonies.
Porno land is the third set of chapters- a very real and sometimes funny look at this side of the underworld. She examines her job as a consultant for a movie. She is blunt and free and brings out the best of everyone!
The most enjoyable group of chapters is Susie's "My So-Called Sex Life". She recounts her experiences while on a book tour. How to talk to the maitre'd about those little needs you can't talk about publicly. The book tour diary and people she has met, and finally the Farmer in the Dell.
Susie ends her book by giving us a recipe for real cherry pie- not canned cherries, but the real thing- bing and queen anne. This is the recipe that you use when you want someone to fall in love with you. Recipe for pie pastry- I think Martha Stewart's is better, but they are both delicious. One warning do not make this pie for your lover if you don't want him to stay by your side forever! prisrob

Reading Susie Bright's latest book "Mommy's Little Girl" is like sitting down to a cozy cup of tea and a long chat with a loving, brilliant, witty friend.
I especially enjoyed the chapters about her relationship with her daughter. I admire the bravery and finesse Ms. Bright shows in mothering Aretha in her own authentic fashion. Her daughter and all of her playmates are lucky to have such an open and intelligent adult in their midst.
If you enjoyed her earlier works "The Sexual State of the Union" and "Full Exposure" you'll welcome Ms. Bright's bright, sassy view of the world, her powerful honesty and her crisp writing style.
I sent this book to my own mother, a former librarian, who informed me that this book comes under the category of "guilty pleasures."
Read, enjoy, and learn, from one of America's most beloved advocates of erotic freedom!

Format: Paperback
She's honest, intelligent, funny, and such a very good writer! I enjoyed every one of these wide-ranging essays. True, if you don't want to think about sex, she's not for you, but she always avoids being preachy or simplistic. I found her descriptions of her interactions with her daughter touching and quite believable... it's so hard to give your kids the tools they need to stand up against the uniform terror people seem to feel around sex even now. A good read!

Susie writes some charming stories in this book. My favorite line from Mommy's Little Girl comes after Susie's daughter writes on her bedroom wall: Mommy is a pig! To which Susie gushes: My baby is expressing herself!

I'm just amazed at Susie's common sense & positive approach to parenting & sex in this collection of essays. My favorite piece of her work is in here, "The Best She Ever Had", and I have a new favorite called, I think, "The Farmer in the Dell". It's just so refreshing to hear someone who's written so boldly about sex admit that it's hard for her to get laid while on book tour, and then write the steamy story of sexing the farmer after cancelling her media schedule for the day.

I always feel so happy reading Susie's work - when I'm not riled up by the political injustices she also writes about - and her work is always entertaining & thought provoking. Another story she wrote about a friend who planned her death has stayed with me a month after finishing this book. I couldn't believe someone with such a full life could plan out her death & make it happen herself . . . but I have to admit I was awed by her courage & certainty & class.

So really what I love most about Susie's writing is her honesty, whether she's talking about sex, parenting, or death. She's always real & open, no matter the topic & no matter her audience. I loved this book!

Bright is an engaging writer, and her prose goes down quickly, like a cool drink on a hot day. I confess, though, that I always feel taken aback when it's obvious she assumes everyone would be happier if they would just sensibly be a pansexual polyamorous uninhibited atheist like herself. Still, she has a lot of interesting things to say about teaching your daughter about female sexuality, making cinematic lesbian sex look realistic, and baking a kick-ass cherry pie.

Was somewhat disjointed and not as interesting as I hoped - I would not buy another book from this author
