TO HELL WITH ALL THAT Loving and Loathing Our Inner Housewife

by | Read by Julia Fletcher

Contemporary Culture • 5.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2006

Julia Fletcher's chipper, brisk tone gives an efficient reading of Flanagan's conflicted ruminations. Flanagan questions major and minor decisions about working, raising children, and making a home. Fletcher's articulate voice smoothes over the mélange of essay topics that Flanagan has cobbled together. Fletcher does an admirable job establishing a consistent tone to express Flanagan's often contradictory thoughts about raising children and home care. She asks, for example, whether shopping for trendy containers counts as "house-cleaning." Flanagan's prose offers some bits of humor, which Fletcher delivers appropriately, but a title that seems to promise some true irreverence about the complications of daily life ultimately remains too inward-looking to truly satisfy.
