Summary
Ruth Sternberg was the first and most famous mommy blogger, and now, eighteen years later, daughter and blog subject Abbie is understandably bitter about her public exploitation. So she takes a gap year to get away from the scrutiny and her overbearing mother. When she hears that her beloved grandmother is moving in with Ruth after receiving a terminal diagnosis, she rightly suspects that her mother has found a new subject to write about on her blog. Abbie can't bear the notion that her grandmother's suffering will be shared with the nation, so she kidnaps her, sending her doting but misguided mother into a panic. Famous Baby wisely and hilariously explores mother love, identity, and the hazards of parental over-sharing in the social media age.Karen Rizzo is the author of the Book Sense Pick Things to Bring, S#!; and Other Inventories of Anxiety, a memoir built around her penchant for lists. Rizzo's stories and essays have appeared in the Los Angeles Times, Salon, Fit Pregnancy, and women's humor anthologies, and her plays have been staged at several theaters. Famous Baby is her first novel. Rizzo lives with her actor husband and two children in Los Angeles, California
