Description: For every woman trying to strike that impossible balance between work and home -- and pretending that she has -- for every woman who has wanted to hurl the acquaintance who coos admiringly, "Honestly, I just don't know how you do it, " out a window, here's a novel to make you cringe with recognition and laugh out loud. With fierce, unsentimental irony, Allison Pearson's novel brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of working motherhood at the start of the 21 st century.Meet Kate Reddy, hedge fund manager and mother of two. She can juggle nine different currencies in five different time zones and get herself and two children washed and dressed and out of the house in half an hour. In Kate's life, Everything Goes Perfectly as long as Everything Goes Perfectly. She lies to her own mother about how much time she spends with her kids; practices pelvic squeezes in the boardroom; fakes home-made jams for the school potluck; and cries into the laundry hamper when she misses her children's bedtime. In anovel that is at once uproariously funny and achingly sad, Allison Pearson captures the guilty secret lives of working women -- the self-recrimination, the comic deceptions, the giddy exhaustion, the despair -- as no other writer has.
