Not BecomingMy Mother by Ruth Reichl ISBN 13: 9781594202162

ISBN 10: 1594202168

Unknown; New York: Penguin Press Hc, The, 2009-04; ISBN-13: 978-1594202162

In Not Becoming My Mother, bestselling author Ruth Reichl embarks on a clear-eyed, openhearted investigation of her mothers life, piecing together the journey of a woman she comes to realize she never really knew. Looking to her mothers letters and diaries, Reichl confronts the painful transition her mother made from a hopeful young woman to an increasingly unhappy older one and realizes the tremendous sacrifices she made to make sure her daughters life would not be as disappointing as her own. Growing up in Cleveland, Miriam Brudno dreamed of becoming a doctor, like her father. But when she announced this, her parents said, Youre no beauty, and its too bad youre such an intellectual. But if you become a doctor, no man will ever marry you. Instead, at twenty, Miriam opened a bookstore, a profession everyone agreed was suitably ladylike. She corresponded with authors all over the world, including philosophers such as Bertrand Russell, political figures such as Max Eastman, and novelists such as Christopher Marlowe. It was the happiest time of her life. Nearly thirty when she finally married, she fulfilled expectations, settled down, left her bookstore behind, and started a family. But conformity came at a tremendous cost. With labor-saving devices to aid in household chores, there was simply not enough to do to fill the days. Miriamand most of her friendswere smart, educated women who were often bored, miserable, and silently rebellious. On what would have been Miriams one hundredth birthday Reichl opens up her mothers diaries for the first time and encounters a whole new woman. This is a person she had never known. In this intimate study Reichl comes to understand the lessons of rebellion, independence, and self-acceptance that her motherthough unable to guide herselfsucceeded in teaching her daughter.
