Read full description of the books:
What I wanted Tori Amos's book to be, really. Mystical, practical, honest, yet artful. FLB is kind of like a less totally mean version of Tori anyway...
A reflection on the first year of motherhood of FLB. She's still her silly self and it is interesting to realize that she totally just wants to be Weetzie Bat and that's not a bad thing. She doesn't change that much in motherhood--there is a lot of reflection on beauty and awkwardnesses and sad times and good times. She talks about nursing a lot and how mother and child nourish each other in very basic and also profound terms. Mostly I like it because she manages to sustain and integrate the joy and terror and even some of the mundane of motherhood for the whole book without getting technical or whiny about it.
I kind of want my mommy to read it.

Read information about the authorFrancesca Lia Block was born in Los Angeles to a poet and a painter, their creativity an obvious influence on her writing. Another influence was her childhood love of Greek mythology and fairy tales.
She has lived in the city all her life, and still resides there with her daughter, Jasmine Angelina (about whom she wrote her book Guarding the Moon), her son Samuel Alexander, and her two dogs: a springer spaniel named Vincent Van Go Go Boots and a beagle mix named Thumper.
She left only to attend the University of California, Berkeley. She has often professed her love of Los Angeles, calling it a "Jasmine-scented, jacaranda-purple, neon sparked city," which she has nicknamed in her books "Shangri-LA."
