As revolutionary as The Second Sex and as controversial as Backlash, this book will transform readers' thinking about the place of child rearing in women's lives. Immediately acclaimed by readers ranging from Allison Pearson to Carol Gilligan, from Daphne Merkin to Mary Matalin.

Review:

"Daphne de Marneffe nudges us gently but persuasively away from the competing cliches of mothering as either sacred duty or time-juggler's burden, and makes us think about why women want to take care of children in the first place. Maternal Desire is a pleasure to read and to think about.... The most original and stimulating book on motherhood to come along in a very long while."

About the Author:

Daphne de Marneffe, PhD, is a clinical psychologist experienced in treating adults and children. Educated at Harvard and UC Berkeley, she has lectured on the subject of maternal desire and her scholarly work has been published in psychoanalytic and feminist journals.
