The Rules Do Not Apply by Ariel Levy review:

After losing her baby, the journalist's honest and touching memoir, in which tragedy and other problems struck at the heart of her perfect life, is about life not always giving us what we want 

Book review: The Tidal Zone by Sarah Moss

The subject of motherhood has preoccupied much of Moss’s career as a novelist. In Night Waking an academic is torn between her work and her family; while the late 19th-century-set Bodies of Light, and it’s sequel, Signs for Lost Children, examine the debilitating long-term effects of a toxic mother-daughter relationship. By comparison, Moss’s new novel, The Tidal Zone, is marked by a change of perspective: that of a stay-at-home father.
