Read full description of the books The Jewish Daughter Diaries:Moms who impersonate their daughters on JDate. Moms who try to set their daughters up with celebrities. Moms who can’t stop taking selfies with their dogs. This collection of essays is a heartfelt, hilarious tribute to mom and daughterhood. The Jewish Daughter Diaries features stories from some of the most compelling Jewish female voices today, who sound off on what it is like to be loved and adored by a modern-day Jewish mom.
“My mother met my bewilderment with a sympathetic glance and a modest recounting of my assets as she saw them…. if Barbra Streisand could be so famous and amazing and wonderful with her nose, why should mine be any problem?”
“I knew my mom was special because once I asked her, “If a witch turned me into a bug, what would you do? Without missing a beat, she said, “I’d put you in my pocket to keep you with me always.”
The stories in this collection will make you laugh, cry, panic—and finally, pick up the phone. For anyone who has ever been overloved, overprotected or overmothered, this collection will feel like home.
