Mother, Can You Not by Kate Siegel
Release Date: April 5, 2016
I absolutely loved Mother, Can You Not (MCYN). Kate Siegel has compiled numerous stories, ranging from awkward childhood sex talks to stalking religious figures, all involving her mother’s unique lack of censure. She first started introducing her mom to the internet with her hit Instagram account, @CrazyJewishMom.
MCYN was a hilarious collection that had me laughing and cringing from start to finish. The addicting tales are so easy to relate to, because what child hasn’t found their parent embarrassing yet still lovable. It was nice to see someone’s mother was a little more “crazy” than mine, and that she too is being hounded for grandbabies.
Overall, I give Mother, Can You Not 5 stars. I hated having to put it down, and I was very sad to see it end…but now I’m one of the 809k+ followers on Instagram, and I’m anxiously waiting to see what comes out of CrazyJewishMom’s brain next!
