A novelist and journalist whose work has appeared on fiction, nonfiction, and self-help bestseller lists, Anna Quindlen has produced another winner in her new work of nonfiction, NANAVILLE. She reflects on the different maternal roles we play throughout our lives and explores the joys and revelations of being a first-time grandmother ... no longer as mother and decision-maker, but as a secondary character in support of her son and especially of her daughter-in-law, who is beginning her own motherhood journey. Packed with her signature wisdom, humor and wit, this is Anna at her best: on family, female relationships, and being a parent, sister, friend, and mother-in-law.

Across the country, grandparents are taking more active roles in their grandchildren’s lives. 2.6 million adults are raising their grandchildren, and since the 1970s the number of children living with grandparents has doubled. As timely as ever, and again showing an uncanny ability to capture the pulse of life’s most memorable moments, Anna Quindlen speaks to women of all ages who are embracing a new way of grandparenting in NANAVILLE.
