Mom and daughter

“Old World Daughter, New World Mother: An Education in Love and Freedom” is a memoir by Maria Laurino.

According to a recent press release:

“Laurino complicates and deepens the debate between stay-at-home and working moms with the unique predicament of women caught between Old World and New World Values. 

With great humor and great seriousness, Laurino wisely dissects and ultimately
brings peace to these “wars.”  It was for good reason that David Chase, creator of “The Sopranos,” said of Laurino’s last book, Were You Always an Italian?: “Finally, someone has had the intelligence and honesty to go beyond the stereotypes.”

Old World Daughter, New World Mother will resonate with anyone who thinks there might be a better way to balance work and family-and with anyone who believes that such a thing as “pro-family feminism” might be possible.”

PW states: “Laurino deftly tells her story, while succinctly expressing a feminist’s perspective on motherhood and explaining how much further we have to go as a country in order to honor every woman’s work.”
