Publisher's Summary

What do you do when you are a nanny to an obscenely rich Park Avenue matron named X? Mrs. X refuses to do anything for herself, including cook, clean, or take care of her 4-year-old son. You are expected to do everything, including maintaining the mental health of said 4-year-old, even while Mrs. X decides that it is time for a divorce. You'll have to bear up under the strain with wit and panache, even as the boundaries between your working life and your so-called private life blur, merge, and disappear. The symbiotic relationship between parent and nanny ensures that your life will be spent anticipating and fulfilling the needs of your charge and your employer. Have fun! The readers of this book certainly will.

The Nanny Diaries

I thoroughly enjoyed this audiobook. Each day, as I arrived at work, I could not wait for the end of the day so I could listen to this story some more! I started listening to audiobooks during Lent to help me overcome my impatience with other drivers ... and it works! Now, I don't care how long it takes me to get somewhere!

In the Nanny Diaries, it is amazing how wealthy people treat those they feel are "beneath" them. It is all too true, I'm sure. This is a very good listen and I'm sure you'll enjoy it.

Very Funny and Great Characters

I'm not even finished listening to this book, but I really love the narrator (Kathe Mazur). Within the first few minutes of reading, I was laughing to myself in my cubicle. I think her "EARMUFFS!!!!" outburst was hilarious. This is not usually the genre of book that I read, but I'm so glad that I did. As a mother of 2 little ones, I can relate to those who say that the message this story conveys is not at all funny, however, the book is very well written, and the narrator is quite engaging. It's a great read!
