S'Mother is a hilarious memoir based on 30 years of unsolicited advice, news updates, and opinions in the form of thousands of inappropriate, embarrassing, and utterly crazy letters showing the pathological extremes maternal instincts can take. Why is a grown woman so frantic that her adult son screw on his windows to keep out killer bees? Are adult trick-or-treaters really that much of a threat? Adam saved his mom's letters as proof this all happened and reproduces many of them in the book.

It started a little slow, but I was howling by the end!! So funny that he would save all of these letters!! When was your last Tetanus shot? ;)

Reading this as a daughter, not a mother, makes me wonder what a parent’s take on this book would be. Of course, being the “child” I tend to sympathize more with Adam—even as I recognize and smile at Joan’s obvious love and concern for him. But those on the other side, the parents,…I wonder if they are more on Joan’s wavelength.
