Novelist and Nonfiction Author Daisy Waugh

by Jenny McPhee

In a delightful double-whammy, Daisy Waugh talks about her new novel Melting the Snow on Hester Street, the story of a high-society marriage set against the backdrop of the Golden Age of Hollywood. And she’ll give us an ante prima of her book due out in June: I Don’t Know Why She Bothers: Guilt-Free Motherhood for Thoroughly Modern Women, in which Daisy wages war on the parenting experts and the modern, middle class mothering brigade who have turned motherhood from a happy passage of life, to a sacrosanct, life consuming and anxiety-driven vocation.
