“Jen is one of the funniest comedians I've ever seen and her book is predictably hysterical. It's also moving, important and wonderful”

Sara Pascoe

I’m Jen Brister, stand-up comedian, middle-aged adolescent and, more recently, a mum. But not that mum – I’m the other one. Confused? Let’s back up a bit. Two years ago, my partner (a woman – we’re not solicitors) gave birth to twins. Yes. Yes. Already there’s a lot to take in here: gay mums, twins, solicitors… (I know! Believe me, I’m still reeling myself.)

Like every new parent, Jen has absolutely no clue what she’s doing. Add `gay’ and `non-biological’ to the mix and what do you get? Not a weird box of detergent, but a panicked beige lesbian desperately googling, `Will my babies love me?’ at 3 a.m. This is a book for any parent who feels they don’t fit the mould of a traditional 2.4 family.

Stand-up comedian Jen Brister takes a very funny, very honest look at life as a parent to her young twin boys: from IVF awfulness to crying over the pages of sleep training manuals. As `the other mother’ she has the perfect vantage point for us to laugh and cry alongside her.
