You never know what to expect from the brilliant, talented and lively Sandra Tsing Loh, but you do know that she is going to challenge the status quo, make you laugh and change the way you see the world. Whether on stage, on air, or on the page, she bravely takes on society’s “rules,” and not only entertains us, but enlightens us at the same time.
Her latest book is “Mother on Fire: A True Motherf%#$@ Story About Parenting![“”] The book chronicles what Loh describes as “the year I burst into flames” — also known as a year spent combing Los Angeles in her Cheez-It-encrusted minivan trying to get her child into kindergarten without paying an exorbitant tuition or selling her soul for the good education that every child deserves.
“Mother on Fire” is smart, sassy and unafraid to give voice to the desperate state of the public education system, a serious situation that Loh tackles expertly with wit and passion.
