The New Yorker calls Cutting Teeth “a comically energetic debut.”

A wonderful review for Cutting Teeth in The New Yorker:

Cutting Teethby Julia Fierro (St. Martin’s). Five pairs of variously overmedicated and undersatisfied Brooklyn parents head to a Long Island beach house for Labor Day weekend with their cranky, drooling, pampered progeny. What could possibly go wrong? In this comically energetic début novel, Fierro, a mother of two who runs a writing workshop in Brooklyn, examines how easily privilege, neurosis, and love freighted with overwhelming fear of failure can turn even the sanest women into “sancti-mommies.” As her characters struggle to tame their toddlers without becoming fractious children themselves, Fierro reminds us how complicated the task of rearing human beings is, even in the most liberal of enclaves.
