Mommie Dearest (Mommie Dearest #1)
by Christina Crawford
With the 20th Anniversary Edition of Mommie Dearest, Christina Crawford becomes one of the only authors in publishing history to re-issue a number one best-seller. “The new edition is published as I intended it.
More than 100 pages – mostly that delve into my adult relationship with Mother – that were left out of the original version are back in,” said Ms. Crawford.
“I’ve also added eyewitness accounts from people who came forward with information after the book was initially published, a preface to reflect the whirlwind that has happened in my life since Mommie Dearest was first published, and an afterword on adoption reform.
” When it was released in 1978, Christina Crawford’s Mommie Dearest made an indelible impression on America’s cultural landscape: it enjoyed 42 weeks on the New York Times best-seller list, spawned a cult film classic based on the book, and placed the issue of family violence in the national spotlight.
Issues of family violence brought to light then have yet to be resolved today and the book still stands as a catalyst for change.
Christina Crawford is an internationally recognized, best-selling author and advocate for adoption reform, the rights of women and children, and a pioneer in making family violence an issue of national concern.
