What's so funny about the weddings, nannies, overscheduled children, sex (or the lack thereof), the cult of the "domestic goddess" and its manias for home decorating and gourmet cooking, and the endless tension between working moms and stay-at-home moms? Caitlin Flanagan knows, and she offers it up in a fresh, witheringly funny take on women's lives today. Part social history, part social commentary, part personal account of the author's own relationship with her mother and her children, To hell with all that is about the things that interest Flanagan the most: women and children, households and marriages. Presented as a series of essays, it follows the natural course of women's lives. Without offering a prescription for happiness, it defines where Flanagan wants to be: in a world where a woman is depended on, and considered irreplaceable, by people who love her.
