Delightfully smart and heartbreakingly poignant, Allison Pearson's smash debut novel has exploded onto bestseller lists as "The national anthem for working mothers." Hedge-fund manager, wife, and mother of two, Kate Reddy manages to juggle nine currencies in five time zones and keep in step with the Teletubbies. But when she finds herself awake at 1:37 a.m. in a panic over the need to produce a "homemade "pie for her daughter's school, she has to admit her life has become unrecognizable. With panache, wisdom, and uproarious wit, " "I Don't Know How She Does It" "brilliantly dramatizes the dilemma of every working mom.
