Elissa Altman, MOTHERLAND: A MEMOIR OF LOVE, LOATHING, AND LONGING

Elissa Altman's new memoir, MOTHERLAND, is absolutely beautiful!

A tale of narcissistic personality disorder in the flesh, Elissa's story will rivet anyone who has struggled with a relationship. Our conversation was personal, open and filled with writing and daughter-ing insights.
