I’m very excited about Rebecca Walker’s new book, an anthology called One Big Happy Family. As we all know by now, modern families come in many shapes and sizes…and colors. ZZ Packer writes about being the mother of a light-skinned baby, while Dawn Friedman writes about adopting a black child. asha bandele writes about having a baby with a man who is in prison. There’s also an essay by Min Jin Lee, whom I interviewed a few months ago for J-Select Magazine, on her relationship with her child’s caretaker, and an essay by Susan McKinney de Ortega, who married a Mexican teenager and had a couple kids with him. AND, I contributed an essay on my own family.
