In an assignment not unlike the one that launched Anna Quindlen's book career, Lisa Belkin's "Life's Work" column in the Business section of The New York Times has struck a chord with readers struggling to juggle life, career, and parenting. Building on that forum (which generates several hundred e-mail responses a month), Belkin candidly tells her own story, offering some hard-won lessons in the process.

Belkin was already an award-winning reporter when she left the office eight years ago to work from home. Amid the chaos of two young children, writing assignments, and domestic details, she acquired the sort of insight and humor that have made her such a beloved spokesperson for the over-engaged. Sometimes funny, often poignant, and always dead-on, this is the story of one woman's realization that a neat separation of home and work cannot be done. In comedic episodes reminiscent of Erma Bombeck, we follow the author through her struggle to do it all -- and, ultimately, arrive with her at the conclusion that it's OK to do just some of it.
