And you think your mom is too involved? Meet the mother of all mothers. Adam Chester is the son of a very loving mom, who for almost 30 years has peppered his life with unsolicited advice, news updates, and opinions in the form of thousands of inappropriate, embarrassing, and utterly crazy letters. S'Mother is a hilarious memoir based on this correspondence 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? And 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. And now, with time, perspective, and plenty of therapy, he acknowledges and accepts the comedy of it all and is proud to share his story with you, if for no other reason than to make you feel better about your own mother.

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.
