Epigraph
The precise intersection of many women's most passionate impulses - their profound, almost physical love for their children and their fervent wish to make something of themselves beyond their own doorstep - is the exact spot where nannies show up for work each day.
--Caitlin Flanagan, "How Serfdom Saved the Women's Movement: Dispatches from the Nanny Wars,"
The Atlantic Monthly, March 2004
Dedication
In memory of my mother, Bernice R. Goldstein
For Richard, Matt, and Gillian
First words
Preface: After eight years of scooping ice cream on Capitol Hill, one night I found myself on the floor of the Ice Cream Lobby with a gun aimed at my head.
