    Roiphe, Anne.
    FRUITFUL: A Real Mother in the Modern World.

    Edition: First printing.

    Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1996. SIGNED hardcover first edition - Roiphe has a family of six daughters, a mixture of hers, his and theirs, so she brings her own personal experiences to this book. A humorous, yet critical analysis on what it means to be a mother, she advocates co-mothering and condemns the women's movement for its male-bashing focus, offers a critical account of the feminist stance on marriage and motherhood, and argues for renewed support for the needs of working women trying to bring up children. She describes the many painful dilemmas instantly recognizable by any mother: the effect of a working mother on her children; the sufficiency of being a "good-enough mother."
