Just out: "Slummy Mummy" by Fiona Neill. It's been described as the lovechild of "Bridget Jones" and "I Don't Know How She Does It".
Katie Roiphe's opinion in Slate magazine: "We as a culture have a tendency to romanticize the stay-at-home mother, to simultaneously ignore and revere her, and it seems to me that books like this are complicit in this tendency.
