Liberated from the daily minutiae when her daughter left home, Michele A’Court suddenly found the time she’d never had as a parent — to think about being a parent. Mostly, she spent the time wondering if she’d told her daughter everything she needed to know — such as how to store ginger, get rid of bloodstains, calculate GST, stop your tights snagging, the meaning of feminism … that sort of thing.

So she began to make a list. The list became a hit solo comedy show. And then the list kept getting longer. So now it has become a book. A funny, wise, honest and maybe even useful book.

Michele A’Court was born in 1961 and is New Zealand’s best known female comedian (a term she dislikes, as it makes her sound like a female who happens to be a comedian, rather than just a comedian), with a high profile via regular TV appearances (7 Days, a high-rating current-affairs comedy panel show), a newspaper column, a weekly slot on Radio New Zealand National, occasional contributions to newspapers and magazines, and regular public appearances, festival shows, tours and speaking engagements. She was voted NZ Comedy Guild Comedian of the Decade (Female) in 2010

  1. With 2 sons’ and now a daughter this is worth while reading. Love to be the best Mum I could be and to give her the wisest advise so this book by my bedside would give me hints and tips about most likely everything.

  2. I was lucky enough to receive this book to review and this is how I found it

    <3 <3 This was a totally inspiring book, wish it was around when my daughter left home, will keep it for my grand-daughters. Loved the chapters about feminism. New Zealand needs a pat on the back for leading the way in treating women most fairly since the beginning of the twentieth century. The Author has led an interesting and busy life which comes out in her writing. She gives some great advice and there are great laugh out loud passages which make you want to keep on reading

    Would definitely recommend this book to mothers with daughters and if you wis to read a fantastic book..
