MOM, THE WOLF MAN, AND ME by Norma Klein | Kirkus ReviewsThank you! Brett is one of those blase New York children whose parents are photographers and authors and such; never having had a father doesn't seem to bother as much as the possibility that she might acquire one in the person of the Wolf Man he owns an Irish wolfhound. Since Brett really likes the Wolf Man she's just afraid that marriage will affect her relationship with her mother , the problem is easily resolved in his favor. Chiefly, the author known to adults by way of Love and Other Euphemisms, uses BretT's cheerful independence as a foil for some not unsympathetic satire on adult foibles -- friend Evelyn's mother turns husband hunting into a career, Andrew's father a rabbi is suffocatingly authoritarian, mother's old boyfriend Wally is sweet but hopelessly henpecked by his estranged wife. If none of these characters are exactly original, at least Brett's live and let live attitude is a welcome change from some of her self-consciously clever counterparts.
