For You, Mom. Finally.

Previously published as Not Becoming My Mother

By Ruth Reichl
Narrated by Ruth Reichl / 1 hour 34 minutes

Bestselling author Ruth Reichl examines her mother's life-and gives voice to the unarticulated truths of a generation of exceptional women 

A former New York Times restaurant critic, editor in chief of Gourmet, and the author of three bestselling memoirs, Ruth Reichl is a beloved cultural figure in the food world and beyond. Not Becoming My Mother is her openhearted investigation of the life of a woman she realizes she never really knew-her mother. Through letters and diaries-and a new afterword relating the wisdom she's gained after sharing her story-Reichl confronts the transition her mother made from a hopeful young woman to an increasingly unhappy older one and recognizes the huge sacrifices made to ensure that her daughter's life would not be as disappointing as her own.


Please note: This title was changed to For You Mom, Finally for the Penguin paperback edition.
