Have one of those mothers who weighs in on every aspect of your life? Perhaps you'll relate to Elaine Lui, an author who just released, in her own words, a "sort of" memoir entitled Listen to the Squawking Chicken: When Mother Knows Best, What's a Daughter to Do? ($19) It's packed with humor and emotion, and you'll alternate between being jealous of Lui and her mother's dynamic and being thankful you're not in her shoes. Love doesn't always come across lovingly, and this book demonstrates that excellently.
