in conversation with Hannah Sung 

THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD MOTHERS is a thrill ride that makes us look hard at the reality of contemporary motherhood and the failures of a society that seeks to punish mothers rather than celebrate them. 

A terrifying novel about mass surveillance, loneliness, and the impossible measurements of motherhood."  ~Carmen Maria Machado
