NEW PROVIDENCE, NJ - If you’re feeling “Lost in Suburbia,” Tracy Beckerman’s new memoir might be a good
read for you.
Beckerman, a long time columnist for over 400 newspapers nationwide, will be touring with her book starting April 3 and appearing on “The Today Show” on April 16.
“The book is about how I lost my way, and then got my groove back,” said Beckerman. “All told with a lot of truth but also a lot of humor!”
“Lost in Suburbia: A Momoir. How I Got Pregnant, Lost Myself, and Got My Cool Back in the New Jersey Suburbs,” tells Beckerman’s adjustment from city living to suburban mother. She said that her real struggle was moving past the idea that her job title and paycheck defined her.
“When I had kids and decided to give all that up, I had a real identity crisis,” she said. “I loved being home with my kids, but I really struggled with feeling good about myself without a paycheck and cool job title to define me.“
Beckerman also contributes to Aiming Low and Huffington Post Parents, as well as “The Balancing Act” on Lifetime. She self-published a book of her columns in 2008 called “Rebel without a Minivan.” Also, she has contributed to a book called “See Mom Run” and one called “Fifty Shades of Funny.”
“Lost in Suburbia” will launch on April 2, and can be ordered through Amazon, Barnes and Noble, Books a Million and “basically every other online bookseller,” according to Beckerman. It is also available for Kindle. For more information on Beckerman’s book or to pre-order it, please visit www.lostinsuburbia.com.
