I bought Bitchfest from a lovely political bookshop on Commercial Drive in Vancouver whose name escapes me at this moment of course. I re-read it recently and found a collection of parenting essays. I love learning from a new perspective as much as I love going, “Ya! I know! Thank Bowie someone else does too!” I others do too – you’re reading my ramblings, right? So pick up a copy and give this collection of articles a read. If you want to skip to the aforementioned essays go to Chapter 5 Domestic Arrangements
