Women Writers on Bypassing Parenthood


This fascinating collection features a star-studded group of contributors -- including Margaret Cho, Wendy Liebman, Laurie Graff, and other accomplished, funny women -- writing about why they opted out of motherhood.

-- Rosie O'Donnell

"The No Kidding essays made me laugh, made me cry, made me wanna give my kid back."
-- Teri Garr
