Tales from Swankville is a collection of humorous and poignant essays inspired by the authors� own experiences as mothers in suburbia where parents are blurring the lines between encouragement and competitiveness, assertiveness and aggression, common sense and a sense of entitlement. From the classroom to the soccer field; the dance studio to the beautifully tree-lined street, no arena is left unscathed by parents behaving badly. Life in Swankville is a fairy-tale . . . gone a bit askew!
