The Diary of a Madman concerns a frustrated, delusional office worker who becomes convinced that he is the King .

The Diary of a Madman concerns a frustrated, delusional office worker who becomes convinced that he is the King of Spain. Not surprisingly, he winds up in a lunatic asylum, but his illness and his reactions to his treatment by the authorities, give Gogol an opportunity for some biting humor and hilarious swipes at the Russian bureaucracy. Full of humor, absurdity, and pathos, these stories offer an excellent introduction to the greater body of Gogol’s work, inviting readers to enter a vibrant fictional world and meet the writer’s cavalcade of bureaucrats, lunatics, swindlers, and humiliated losers.

The story contains thirteen fragments from the diary of a man who has lived in confusion for thirty years and suddenly gains spiritual insight from the moon. This lunatic sensitivity leads him to paranoia. Lu Xun’s previous study of medicine and his knowledge, in his own life, about a mad cousin undoubtedly helped him to portray convincingly a paranoid person’s symptoms.

Young mothers will feel an immediate bond with this lovely author as she meets daily real-life challenges with humor, courage and grace. Of course, you may not totally agree with the way she has handled every situation. In much the same way, you won't totally agree with the way that you handle every situation. With children, it is a constant "think fast!" test.
Ms. Hohlbaum's honest look at the realities of parenting today is witty, painless, and fun. There is a chapter dedicated to Erma Bombeck. The writing here is reminiscent of this beloved author, and I am really looking forward to Ms. Hohlbaum's next book.
There is no way to prepare for the facts of Motherhood. Sure, we know intellectually, what it will do our careers, social lives, and marriages. We know what a lofty calling, and a moral challenge that the protection and training of our children is. We know what important hostages to civilization young mothers become.
But the `Devil is in the Details", and there is no way to prepare for these - or maybe, now, there is? Buy a copy of "Diary of a Mother: Parenting Stories and Other Stuff", for every young mother you know. She will still be reading it when all of her other baby shower gifts are long-gone.

As grandmother to a toddler, I am constantly being reminded of the day-to-day trials and joys of being mom to a preschooler. Ms. Hohlbaum's book cemented those memories and gave me some new potential disasters (adventures?) to contemplate. I plan to share this book with my daughter, so she'll remember to laugh when everything goes wrong.

Ms. Hohlbaum's writing style is clear and entertaining. I finished this book in no time at all. Busy moms will find time to read it in the bathroom, in doctors' office waiting rooms, and in the car waiting for school to let out or sports practice to end.

I love to read and I was looking forward to reading this book based on the great reviews especially since I'm a new mom. It was much thinner than I expected. I started reading it and I just couldn't get into it. I didn't find it that humerous either. Very disappointed so I returned it.
Made-with-Love
In a collection of 27 witty essays, the author captures the hilarity, chaos, exhaustion, and exhilaration of young motherhood. An ear for the ironic, an eye for the beautiful, and an unflinching generosity in sharing her own humanity make this book a pleasure to read. Thanks, Christine!

Christine Hohlbaum's stories about motherhood run the gamut from hilarious to poignant, and they each hold a special thought or lesson for the reader to take away. This Mother's diary is a great read for mothers and a revelation for fathers. A must read for both. I truly enjoyed it.

As a mother, I know the madness we can experience. Christine has complied a collection of short stories of motherhood and the madness we go through. It tells of the ups and downs, the good's and bad's of being a full time mother. Whether you're a new mother or a seasoned one, this book is for you. The reader will find they'll never feel alone again and will strongly relate to the author.
Each story has a different approach to the hairiness of being a mother. Some will make you smile, others cry and constantly laughing. Author Christine Hohlbaum is the Erma Bombeck of the 21st century, only she adds spice and tenderness to her stories. "Diary of a Mother" is written with such love, and throughout the reader knows how much Christine loves her children and loves being a mother.
From boardroom to nursery, Christine has done it all. However, she doesn't claim to be an expert at motherhood, but after you read this book you will agree she's doing pretty well. Not only is she a writer with a story to tell but a comedian as well. She dispels the myth that being a mother stops you from achieving your dreams and goals in life.
I suggest each mother rush out and buy a copy today. Moreover, if you know someone whose pregnant this book would make a wonderful gift to show her you care. If you're a skeptic of the challenges of a mother, this book is without a doubt for you. "Diary of a Mother" is a very fast read and can be finished in a day, while balancing 2 kids on your knees. Hat's off to this talented woman who tells readers they too, can be a mother and stay sane.
This wife, this mother, this author has not one but three fingers on the pulse of life because the pulse of life for her is powerful... definitely a three finger requirement.
In this book, Christine Louise Hohlbaum allows us to witness the loving horror that is called being married with children.
For instance, a take-charge, means-business two-year old pulls down her pants and pees on the Library floor as a Mom who desperately tries to cling to a modicum of normalcy quickly browses the rack of new paperbacks.
Or the same Mom suspects she has bad breath from forgetting to brush her teeth that frantic morning and tests her suspicion by blowing on her eight-month old child and closely monitoring his reaction.
These are only a couple of glimpses into that surreal world of child rearing revealed by Ms. Hohlbaum. There are many more.
Ms. Hohlbaum describes the horrors and frustrations with so much humor that you find yourself laughing out loud. And through it all, and ever apparent, is the love that makes it all worth while.
I, personally, am single. I have no children. I own 4 plants and they don't cause any trouble. And yet I enjoyed this book immensely. It showed me the bittersweet other side.
This is a book for every single (or not) one of us.
