Editorial Reviews

Review

A Must Read --New York Post 

"Morbidly funny" --People Magazine

"Jennifer Weiss and Lauren Franklin celebrate our transgressions in their new book... No matter what stage of motherhood you are surviving at the moment, Weiss and Franklin commiserate with you down memory lane or give you something to look forward to. Something that will be much funnier in retrospect." --Fredericksburg.com

"Hurts Like A Mother is a brief but humorously morbid book. Harkening to the gothic Victorian mood from Gorey's original illustrations and poems, the stark black-and-white drawings comically depict modern parenting crises, particularly when portraying the faces of the harried mothers which range from fatigued to intoxicated to homicidal."
--BoingBoing.com
