Ah, this is such a classic. My former professor at Evergreen wrote it, also just a cool lady. But essentially, she takes logic and data and applies them to the mythos of the 1950's "nuclear family" and debunks every stereotype we had about what a family looks like. That families have always changed with the social and economic structures of their times. A great book.
