Nanny Lit Strikes Back

MarcyDermansky.jpgThe NY Times ran a trend piece today about a recent upsurge in books about nannies–eight years after The Nanny Diaries topped bestseller charts. The story led with an excerpt from Bad Marie, a novel by Morning Media Menu guest Marcy Dermansky.

Check it out: “‘Envy is something I’m interested in, in general,’ said Ms. Dermansky, interviewed in her home in the Astoria section of Queens, where she lives with her husband and daughter, Nina. ‘There’s always a house that’s better to play at, someone who has better toys.’ Because of their flexible schedules as writers, Ms. Dermansky and her husband only occasionally rely on a baby sitter to look after their daughter, now 11 months old.”

Follow this link to listen to Dermansky’s GalleyCat interview–talking about how she landed her book deal and how she balances family life with her writing life.
