Berkeley resident Ayelet Waldman - the author of Love and Other Impossible Pursuits, Daughter's Keeper and the Mommy-Track Mysteries - created a New York Timess tempest last year when she declared that she loved her husband, writer Michael Chabon, more than she does their four children.  Oh-oh! Call security!

Ms Waldmans essays have been published in the New York Times, the Guardian, the San Francisco Chronicle, Elle Magazine, Vogue, Allure, Cookie, Child, Parenting, Real Simple, Health and Salon.com. Her radio commentaries have appeared on "All Things Considered" and "The California Report." Her books are published throughout the world, in countries as disparate as England and Thailand, the Netherlands and China, Russia and Israel. Waldman was born in Jerusalem, and raised in Canada and New Jersey. A graduate of Wesleyan University and Harvard Law School, Waldman spent three years working as a Federal Public Defender in central California. Her fiction has drawn heavily on her legal education and career as an attorney.
The film of  her novel Love and Other Impossible Pursuits is now in production, with Natalie Portman in the lead role, and also featuring Lisa Kudrow and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.

"Bad Mother is blunt, wry, prescriptive and pleasurable."
                                                                  Meg Wolitzer, author of The Ten-Year Nap

Ayelet Waldmans sane perspective on the challenges of motherhood comes as a relief. I relished her graceful language, self-mocking humor, her clear, if sometimes painful, insight. And I admire herdeeplyfor the bracing honesty that redeems it all."
                                                              Peggy Orenstein, author of Waiting for Daisy
