The rest of us : dispatches from the mother ship by Jacquelyn Mitchard( Book )

10 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 787 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For ten years of Sunday mornings, readers of Jacquelyn Mitchard's newspaper column, "The Rest of Us," have been calling their?mothers, boyfriends, and sisters to say, "See? That's exactly what I meant!" Mitchard's clear-eyed takes on everyday life in process are described over and over as "a letter from home," as "the best friend I can really count on," as "the kind of story you tell at the coffee machine--and keep under your pillow." Now, in this wise and sparkling collection--complete with a new introduction by the author--her long-time readers and fans of her number-one-best-selling novel,?The Deep End of the Ocean Jacquelyn Mitchard reaches for the heart and mind simultaneously, with both wit and nostalgia but never with sentimentality. Whether writing of gun laws and garage sales, the loneliness of the long-haul single mother, fear of gardening, or the late great American game of baseball, Mitchard stresses the personal stake each of us has in the stand-up drama of daily life. The single mother of five children, she shares her own family's dramas and epiphanies--her own mother's tradition of optimism based on nothing, the early death of her husband, the adoption of her baby daughter--as well as the great wheeling issues that confound 1990s Americans every day. If Jacquelyn Mitchard wore a T-shirt, it would say, "What are you waiting for?" Along with only a few writers of our time--Judith Viorst, Anna Quindlen, Erma Bombeck--Jacquelyn Mitchard is able to concoct a graceful blend of humor, vinegar and eloquence that reminds us that no matter how we change or how far we range, we are all "the rest of us."
