After being dumped, Mia is officially a single mother. Just when she thinks the dust has settled from her breakup, she's thrust into a confusing whirlwind of slightly useless friendships, exhaustion, therapy, cathartic playgroup daydreaming sessions, and eventually, the terrifying world of online dating. Anna Härmälä's semi-autobiographical comic vignettes offer a candid (and often hilarious) portrayal of the ups and downs of single parenthood as she discovers how to piece herself back together while raising a tiny human alone on very little sleep.

MEDIA REVIEWS

Härmälä's Single Mothering is an honest and funny reveal of the cult of motherhood and parenting. With a colourful and emotive drawing style, the book tells a deeply relatable story of expectations and grief when things do not work out as one planned. I loved the read and it filled me with empathy for anyone having to do single mothering, be it for a short period of time or for longer, out of choice or not. - Emma Ahlqvist, author of My Body Created a Human

Anna Härmälä's visually stunning, emotionally unflinching graphic memoir SingleMothering is a marvel. Härmälä has an extraordinary sense of pacing, interspersing funny and poignant shorter observations with longer vignettes to take the reader through the experience of her first year as a mother. Härmälä's sumptuous illustrations pair well with her storytelling, and Single Mothering is a beautiful window into the life of a new mom, a single mother, as well as the life of a Scandinavian parent. Moms, single or not, will enjoy this gorgeously illustrated memoir of becoming a mother. - Grace Farris, author of Mom Milestones

As a mother (who almost forgot to write this blurb because mothering is a full-time job), this book made me want to reach out to all the other exhausted moms and give them a hug (and this book) - Katja Klengel, creator of Girlsplaining
