Katie Hafner - Mother Daughter Me

The intense and complex mother/daughter bond has never been brought so fully to life in Mother Daughter Me ($26.00), the remarkable story of one daughter's hope/search/prayer that the regrets of the past can be laid to rest during the year she, her teenage daughter, and her mother spend a year living under the same roof in San Francisco. Katie Hafner's mother, a brilliant, complicated octogenarian had to leave the house where she and her companion of twenty years lived because he needed assisted living. Hafner offered an experiment in living: she would drive her mother from San Diego to San Francisco and, with Hafner's daughter Zoe, would find a place to live for the three of them. Crazy? Loving? Optimistic? What occurs during this year of change for all three makes for an extraordinary work of nonfiction.

Katie Hafner is a frequent contributor to The New York Times, where she writes on healthcare and technology. She has also worked at Newsweek and BusinessWeek, and has written for The New York Times Magazine, Esquire, Wired, The New Republic, The Huffington Post, and O: The Oprah Magazine. She is the author of five previous books covering a diverse set of topics, including the origins of the Internet, computer hackers, German reunification, and the pianist Glenn Gould. She lives in San Francisco.
