Description
Following up her PEN/Faulkner Award finalist Off Keck Road, Mona Simpson here looks at the true cost of childcare—the emotional one—in the lives of Claire, a composer and new mother in Los Angeles, and Lola, the middle-aged Filipino mother whom she hires to care for her little boy.

"Simpson works her habitual magic, showing how love travels, ownerless and unbidden, among children who need adults, and adults who need children. 'Children, they are dependent for their life,' Lola observed, back in Santa Monica. But so are adults. Sitting with her friends, drinking 'nonfat lattes, ice blendeds, a dozen small consolations,' Claire asks, 'For what, exactly, were mothers always being consoled?' Simpson gently suggests an answer: for their fear of failing in their responsibilities, to their children and themselves, the extent of which they'll only know when their children grow up and tell them what they were."—NYTBR
