Don't host a party-host a memory. Everyone loves to throw the perfect party-the one all your friends talk about. Today, everyone is searching for ways to save and still do the things they love in a big way, and almost everyone is craving for creative ideas and solutions to celebrate their lives in a big way-on a tiny budget. New York party-planner Hilary Pereira has happily played hostess and rolled out the red carpet for celebrities such as Jerry and Jessica Seinfeld, Kanye West, Josh Duhamel, Helen Hunt, Vanessa Carlton, Allison Krauss, Helena Christensen, Jane Krakowski, John Legend, Nigel Barker and Danity Kane-just to name a few. And as much as she loves hosting wonderful parties for celebrities, her favorite fetes are the ones she hosts for family and friends. Mermaids & Martinis is a book to teach you creative ways to economize, but also to remember to turn your party into a memory. You may be asking yourself: Why a Mermaid? Look no further than this quote from Louisa May Alcott to capture the essence of our main character: She was one of those happily created beings who please without effort, make friends everywhere and take life so gracefully and easily that less fortunate souls are tempted to believe that such are born under a lucky star.

"My family has a grand tradition. After a woman gives birth, she goes mad. I thought that I would be the one to escape." So begins Adrienne Martini's candid, compelling, and darkly humorous history of her family's and her own experiences with depression and postpartum syndrome. Illuminating depression from the inside, Martini delves unflinchingly into her own breakdown and institutionalization and traces the multigenerational course of this devastating problem. Moving back and forth between characters and situations, she vividly portrays the isolation -- geographical and metaphorical -- of the Appalachia of her forebears and the Western Pennsylvania region where she grew up. She also weaves in the stories of other women, both contemporary and historic, who have dealt with postpartum depression in all its guises, from fleeting "baby blues" to full-blown psychosis. Serious as her subject is, Martini's narrative is unfailingly engaging and filled with witty, wry observations on the complications of new motherhood: "It's like getting the best Christmas gift ever, but Santa decided to kick the crap out of you before you unwrapped it." New mothers and those who have struggled with parenthood -- whether or not they dealt with depression -- will find affirmation in this story of triumph, of escape from a difficult legacy, of hope for others, and of the courage to have another baby.
