Maternal Desire: On Children, Love, and the Inner Life
Daphne de Marneffe
Little, Brown and Company
June 27, 2009

As revolutionary as The Second Sex and as controversial as Backlash, Maternal Desire will transform forever our thinking about the place of child rearing in women’s lives and in our culture. What is the desire to mother? How do we understand it, talk about it, and think about it? These questions are at the heart of Maternal Desire, a groundbreaking book that gives a voice and a vocabulary to one of the most transforming and powerful experiences in women’s lives. Shedding new light on old debates, Daphne de Marneffe provides an emotional road map for mothers who work and mothers who are at home. The book both explores the enjoyment and anxieties of motherhood and offers mothers in all situations valuable ways to think through their self-doubts and connect to their capacity for pleasure. Revolutionary and transforming, Maternal Desire is a book about ideas, a book about culture, and an invitation to self-reflection.
