Praise

"A humorous and incredibly detailed look at the roller-coaster demands of motherhood…a hilarious look at the
housewife and mother." – Booklist

The Passion of the Hausfrau made me laugh, consistently and hard.” —Ayun Halliday, author, The Big Rumpus and “Chief Primatologist,” The East Village Inky

“Nicole Chaison’s The Passion of the Hausfrau made me want to strap on a Miracle Bra®, grab a glass of wine and a pen and chronicle the next PTA meeting I’m forced to attend. This book is bold, funny, raw and surprisingly literary. I’ll never look at The Odyssey (or my sagging breasts) the same way again.”—Robert Wilder, author of Daddy Needs a Drink and Tales From the Teachers’ Lounge

“Nicole Chaison is a brave, soulful, and side-splittingly funny voice of modern motherhood. In The Passion of the Hausfrau, she manages to tell the deep truth about parenting with a spirit that keeps even the most jaded moms laughing.” —Ariel Gore, author of The Mother Trip and creator of Hip Mama Magazine

"Step aside, Hercules. Nicole Chaison reveals the hero’s journey for what it is: a pale, envious imitation of the magical exploits performed every day by ordinary mothers everywhere. The Hausfrau’s most impressive feat, however, is that she has the energy and brain cells left to tell the tale."—Alison Bechdel, author of Fun Home: A Family Tragicomic

“Read The Passion of the Hausfrau, and you’ll feel like you’ve just spent the afternoon with your best ever girlfriend–the one who’s hilarious, compassionate, sneakily erudite and endearingly confessional. You know the girlfriend I mean. She’s conflicted, guilty, wise, left-wing and (though she doesn’t know it) dauntingly talented. So put down that sippy cup, wipe the baby vomit from your back, and head out and buy Nicole’s Chaison’s book. It’s the most fun you’ll ever have with an illuminated manuscript. Guaranteed.”—Debra Spark, author of Coconuts for the Saint and editor, Twenty Under Thirty
