Between offers readers an intriguing, searing portrait of two women from two different cultures. At the same time, it satirizes contemporary love, marriage, and parenthood by exposing the sense of entitlement and superiority at the heart of upper-middle-class North American existence through a ubiquitous presence in it: the foreign nanny. Angie Abdou comically and tragically tackles the issue of international nannies by providing a window on motherhood where it is tangled up with class, career, labour, and desire.

Navel-gazing family stuff. Just not really interesting to me, and the chapter about the drunken family in Mexico was so depressing (I've seen way too many of those types of travelers) that I just figured life's too short to read this kind of book.

Liked this novel about a contemporary Canadian family with all it's modern trappings and complexities.Wicked Christmas scene with the in-laws...a la Franzen. Good writing .
