Description: Legions of Canadians read Judith Timson every month in Chatelaine magazine. In her witty, warm -- sometimes going for the burn -- voice, they've found someone who understands that family life today is by turns funny, stressful, surreal, dumb, dumber and joyous, not to mention completely exhausting.

What kind of family matters concern judith Timson? The fact that we live immersed in a pop culture that has enshrined domestic rudeness, where sitcom families sound as if they majored in Sarcasm 101. Or, the dilemma of getting children to sleep in their own beds that inspires the question, "If God had wanted us all together in one bedroom, would She have given us children's designer wallpaper?" Or the colossal guilt trip that today's mothers feel compelled to travel on (in the Olympics of guilt, Judith Timson swears she has never come in with less than a bronze).

The family today is mutating faster than The Human Fly, leaving a lot of people terrified. But judith Timson, without fear or favor, wades into the modern family laboratory, and comes back with astonishing news: It's Alive! (well, sort of). Always amusing and often deeply moving, Judith Timson is above all honest, unafraid of challenging both the old and new realities of family life. A collection of both Chatelaine columns and new material, Family Matters is truly wonderful writing: who else could claim her best sport is "white water window shopping" in which she portages tirelessly from one store to the next? A domestic dazzler to be sure, and a perfect Mother's Day gift choice.
