Maternal Desire Reviews

"Daphne de Marneffe nudges us gently but persuasively away from the competing cliches of mothering as either sacred duty or time-juggler's burden, and makes us think about why women want to take care of children in the first place. Maternal Desire is a pleasure to read and to think about.... The most original and stimulating book on motherhood to come along in a very long while."
