Book Description "A necessary poet with the courage to 'Tell all the truth' and the 'wit to tell it slant.'"?Alice Fulton Beth Ann Fennelly is fearless in delineating the joys, absorptions, and?yes?jealousies of new motherhood. Having studied motherhood "as if for an exam," reality proved "wilder and deeper and funnier" than anything she'd anticipated. Tender Hooks is Fennelly's spirited exploration of parenting, with all its contradictions and complexities.
