Frivolous Friday - Ommmm

If the Tiger Mother has got you down and you really don't want to hear any more about the sacrifices mothers need to make to have a career, try this book by Claire Dederer,  Poser: My Life in Twenty-Three Yoga Poses.    Instead of getting jobs, getting divorces and getting out, like many women did in the 60s and 70s this book is about how our generation of 40 somethings is looking inward and seeking perfection through yoga.

Or at least this is what Judith Warner hypothesizes in the  January 9, 2011  NY Times Magazine.  And she should know having kicked off quite a debate herself in 2005 with her book Perfect Madness: Motherhood in the Age of Anxiety.
