More About Ungovernable by Therese Oneill
 
 
 
Overview
From the author of the "hysterically funny and unsettlingly fascinating"* New York Times bestseller Unmentionable, a hilarious illustrated guide to the secrets of Victorian child-rearing *Jenny Lawson]

Feminist historian Therese Oneill is back, to educate you on what to expect when you're expecting . . . a Victorian baby In Ungovernable, Oneill conducts an unforgettable tour through the backwards, pseudoscientific, downright bizarre parenting fashions of the Victorians, advising us on:
- How to be sure you're not too ugly, sickly, or stupid to breed

- What positions and room decor will help you conceive a son

- How much beer, wine, cyanide and heroin to consume while pregnant

- How to select the best peasant teat for your child

- Which foods won't turn your children into sexual deviants

- And so much more

Endlessly surprising, wickedly funny, and filled with juicy historical tidbits and images, Ungovernable provides much-needed perspective on -- and comic relief from -- the age-old struggle to bring up baby.
