EXCLUSIVE: ‘JDate My Mom’ by Lauren Greenberg
By Lauren Herstik on May 23, 2014
Save yourself some money on therapy and get ready for Jewish Daughter Diaries: True Stories of Being Loved Too Much By Our Moms, a collection of essays about Jewish mothers, all inherently comic because that’s the reality of most moms — especially Jewish ones.
The collection features stories from Mayim Bialik, The Daily Show producer Jenna Friedman, Last Comic Standing winner Iliza Shlesinger, Key and Peele writer Rebecca Drysdale, and Love You Mean It, With Whitney Cummings writer Lauren Greenberg. Trigger warning for those with mom-love PTSD, the collection features a mom who makes half her daughter’s bed while her daughter is still sleeping in the other half, a mom who takes her camp‐hating daughter on a visit to a “Jewish summer camp consultant,” and in this exclusive piece by Lauren Greenberg, a mom who impersonates her daughter on JDate.
Jewish Daughter’s Diary is out now in paperback.
