I grew up in Vermont and am the same age as Joyce. In the 1980's they had a column every Saturday in our regional newspaper which is the only reason I purchased that paper. I still have all the clippings that moved me the most and I came to be a reader of everything she published. I was able only to meet her once, and I have always felt we are silent soul mates because we have so much in common, and the difference is she is a published writer and I have yet to be. I follow her life via the internet now and even though I know I could write to her, I hesitate because I feel so miniscule in comparison. Domestic Affairs is a fabulous return to a different era and is funny, thoughtful and practical. I rejoiced when they released this for Kindle and highly recommend it for mothers, grown up daughters and anyone interested in life in America in the '80's and 90's. Read this and meditate. The world has drastically changed for the worse since she wote this, and is headed to collapse. Joyce brings some cheer while we are on our journey which will end in a much bettter state then things are now. Want to know more? E mail me.

Probably 20 years ago now I read Joyce Maynard's column in the paper. Our lives paralleled in a lot of ways. All these years later I found her book detailing the every day lives of a mom and her 3 kids. Ms. Maynard is a true talent to take such a mundane subject and make it fun and interesting reading. Its not deep to drag you down, just a good light read. Since it was written so long ago it now brings back memories of raising my kids. The toys she mentions her kids playing with are in many cases not around any more, but I remember my kids having them. I think women with kids between 20 and 30 and also young moms in the midst of raising their kids will enjoy this book.

This is my absolute favorite book. Real life, real motherhood. It's not always pretty or easy but none of us are alone. We are part of a tribe of women who are all birthing, nursing, and parenting.

Wonderful, timeless essays about motherhood and marriage. Both funny and bittersweet. Maynard has a gift for detail and the small moment or incident that speaks volumes.

I looked forward to reading these articles when they were published in Newsday. I love having the articles together in a book. I could relate to Joyce's mothering experiences then and now, I see my daughter, as a Mother, having the same feelings! Love it!

Love Joyce Maynard but this book would appeal to someone with a young family which is not me.
