The complex, deeply binding relationship between mothers and daughters is brought vividly to life in Katie Hafner's memoir of the year she and her mother Helen spent working through, and triumphing over, a lifetime of unresolved emotions. Katie urged Helen, set in her ways at 77, to move to San Francisco to live with her and Zoë, Katie's teenage daughter. Filled with fairy-tale hope that she and her mother would become friends, and that Helen would grow close to her exceptional granddaughter, Katie embarked on an experiment in intergenerational living that she would soon discover was filled with land mines. How these three women from such different generations learn to navigate their challenging, turbulent, and ultimately healing journey together makes for riveting reading.--From publisher description.

I LOVED this book! Any woman 40-50 yrs old who has struggled with Alcoholism within the family dynamics/Adult children of Alcoholics, will want to read this. There are a lot of Good quotes throughout the book, Nancy Friday (My Mother Myself)

Addictive reading, well crafted by a respected reporter/writer. Unfortunately, the therapeutic introspection grows tedious. Historians in another age will find this a fascinating look at what the American intellectual communitywas thinking about in the post-9/11 era.
