I wasn’t aware I needed her and yet I’ve found that nothing could be further from the truth. As you turn the pages of “If You Could See Me” it’s my hope that you’ll also realize how desperate all of us are for her company. She offers what we all wish our own mothers were able to offer us: the majesty of imperfection and unconditional self-acceptance.

You don’t need to know Erin Mahone. Even after you read this extraordinary set of essays which relates the intricacies, absurdities, rewards and mysteries of parenthood, childhood and sanity; even after you are done breathlessly admiring her humor, bravado, and hard-won sagacity, you don’t need to know her. Erin knows you.
