"I truly enjoyed the book and strongly recommend it to anyone who ever had a mother." ~Jackie
"You might be wondering about the title. It's comes from something that
Corrigan's mother said about their family: "Your father's the glitter
but I am the glue." This is a memoir of being a young nanny in many
ways, but it's also a good meditation on mothers, mothering, and family
dynamics. It's touching and baldly honest--Corrigan doesn't hold much,
if anything, back. I saw a lot of me and my mother in this book (and
did some cringing at the memories), but mostly I truly enjoyed the book
and strongly recommend it to anyone who ever had a mother."
