Editorial Reviews

Review

"This book is important to every mother and daughter, and to every woman who wants to be one." MAYA ANGELOU

"A hilarious, irreverent, and always touching account of how Maeder went from dreading caring for 'Mama Jo' to cherishing every minute with her. This generous gift of a book explores the mystery of how doing the right thing can, in the end, become infinitely more." TOMMY HAYS

"Hilarious, heartbreaking, and real. It captures the twists and turns of parenting one's parents and shows the new relationships that can develop as a result." NANCY GILES

"A wise, funny, and honest memoir. It doesn't simplify the complicated relationship between a daughter and her mother. It celebrates it. I couldn't put it down." NELL SCOVELL

"Jo Maeder's tender-hearted, funny memoir is a gift. She expertly writes about the downs and ups of life with an aging parent -- and Mama Jo is like no one you've met. This inspiring, warm, and wonderfully told love story is for absolutely everyone." JULIE KLAM

"Joining the league of classic mother-daughter memoirs, Jo Maeder's book depicts this ancient tug of war with wit, candor, and charm. When her aging mother finally can no longer hold up her end of the rope, two stubborn spirits come together in an almost shocking burst of love." SARAH KERNOCHAN

"Hilarious, poignant, and utterly relevant to all of us facing adulthood with aging parents. Jo Maeder perfectly nails the unique combination of love and frustration that so many of us have felt. And her mother!! Mama Jo is a character I won't soon forget. I adored this book." HOPE EDELMAN

From the Author

"My intention in writing this book was to address what helpful books like THE 36-HOUR DAY cover but told in a gripping narrative style. It warms my heart to see reader reviews echo this. However, you don't need to have a loved one in decline to enjoy it. My editor called it 'a misfit memoir and a great family saga.' I heartily agree."
