Synopsis: One evening in June 2004, a group of women friends get together at Louise's house. Natalie brings red wine, Tamara some gluten-free delight as well as her fully charged mobile (her husband still can't seem to get two children to bed without calling her at least six times). Fiona will haul out her aromatherapy kit, Lou won't arrive without bringing at least a kilo of chocolate, and Melanie will bring "Harvey", prompting much hysterical laughter and animated discussions about their sex lives (or the lack thereof). Based on intimate conversations with real women, united only by their experiences of motherhood, Secret Mothers' business breaks the unwritten, and unspoken, code of perfect mothering to expose the raw truths of parenthood. No taboo is spared in this funny, thought provoking celebration of the beauty and complexity of friendship, the ways that women support one another, and the ways they can let each other down.
About the Author: Joanne Fedler is the author of When Hungry, Eat, Secret Mothers' Business and The Dreamcloth. Her books have sold over 350,000 copies worldwide. Of her many awards and scholarships, she is proudest of Asshole of the Month from Hustler magazine in 1995 in response to her work on gender equality. Joanne studied law at Yale on a Fulbright scholarship, and was a law lecturer and a volunteer legal counsellor at People Opposing Women Abuse (P.O.W.A.) in Johannesburg, South Africa, before setting up and running a legal advocacy centre to end violence against women. She was appointed by the Minister of Justice to sit on a project committee of the Law Commission to design new domestic violence legislation. Some day Joanne hopes to set up a writer's colony, grow her own vegetables and live in a place where she will never be stuck in traffic. She currently lives in Sydney with her husband and two kids.
