Editorial Reviews

Author Jill Milligan writes with humor and sympathy about grandmothers of the baby boom generation in Grandma Rules: Notes on Grandmotherhood, the World's Best Job. These women break the stereotype of the naïve and prim grandmothers of yesteryear. The modern grandmother is aware of mainstream culture to a good degree, and can relate to her children and grandchildren in realistic ways. One thing remains the same: to be a grandmother is to shake off the burden of parenting and just enjoy the fun of interacting with the young. Milligan’s apt descriptions of mother-daughter and husband-wife relationships are especially entertaining. Pam Ward’s wry narration captures Milligan’s voice well.

Publisher's Summary

A response to all those grandmother books with flowers and puppies on the cover, Grandma Rules is a book for the hip, baby boomer grandma who realizes that after all the work she put into her own kids, she can take a break and have fun with her grandkids. A perfect gift for the greatest grandmothers you know, this book is laugh-out-loud funny while offering useful insights and tips on how to embrace the world’s greatest job.
