↔ Free PDF Reading The Mighty Queens of Freeville: A Mother, a Daughter, and the Town That Raised Them ← By Amy Dickinson ✢ Starred Review I didnt become an advice columnist on purpose, writes Dickinson author of the syndicated column Ask Amy in her chapter titled Failing Up In the summertime of 2002, after spending months living off of her credit cards between freelance writing jobs, Dickinson sent in an audition column to the Chicago Tribune and became the papers replacement for the late Ann Landers Here, Dickinson traces her own personal history, as well as the history of her mothers family whose members make up the Mighty Queens of Freeville, N.Y., the small town where Dickinson was raised, and where she raised her own daughter between stints in London New York City Washington, D.C and Chicago Dickinson writes with an honesty that is at once folksy and intelligent, and brings to life all of the struggles of raising a child Dickinson was a single mother and the challenges and rewards of having a supportive extended family Im surrounded by people who are not impressed with me, Dickinson humorously laments They dont care that my syndicated column has twenty two million readers Dickinsons irresistible memoir reads like a letter from an upbeat best friend Feb Copyright Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc All rights reserved.When Ann Landers retired as the reigning doyenne of advice column divas, the Chicago Tribune conducted a nationwide search for her successor, ultimately selecting a relatively unknown NPR contributor and Time magazine columnist Young and savvy, Dickinson belied the image of a bespectacled matron dispensing timeworn homilies and adages Offering pithy, no nonsense counsel, Dickinson quickly charmed legions of fans with her unabashed candor, tension diffusing wit, and astute reasoning How this fortysomething single mother came by such wisdom and practicality is lovingly explored in Dickinsons joyous memoir, an unabashed homage to the notable women who raised her, unassuming small town that nurtured her, and soul mate daughter who sustained her through the emotional minefields of divorce, single parenthood, and career uncertainty Though the Dickinson women might have been unlucky in romantic love, their marital misfortune only served to strengthen their innate resolve and unwavering commitment to family Buoyant and bright, Dickinson offers a refreshingly open and sincere tribute to lifes most important relationships Carol Haggas High and Mighty Queens of Early Modern High Modern
