Love! Laugh! Panic! Life with My Mother,
A Dynamic Roller-Coaster, Mother/Daughter Relationship by Rosemary Mild.

Don't we all have mixed emotions about our mothers? But how many of us have a mother like Rosemary's: multi-talented, yet super-tough to live with? Luby Pollack was a widely published journalist, popular book author, and even an artist of sorts. She sometimes had a daunting role to play. In the delivery room during Rosemary's birth, her psychiatrist husband ordered her not to make any noise during labor—it was "unseemly for a doctor's wife."

Rosemary Pollack Mild started to write a book strictly about herself, but that didn't go so well. She discovered that Mother popped up on every page. Looming. Encouraging. Warning. Always the Protagonist, the Star, the Heroine, the Antagonist, and sometimes the Villain from the viewpoint of a loving but ornery daughter.
