For nearly fifty years an entire nation turned to this quick-witted, worldly-wise counselor for advice on everything from dinner etiquette to sex. But who was the woman behind the byline?Iowa-born Eppie Lederer was first hired by the Chicago Sun-Times to take over the daily advice column in 1955 -- and over the next half-century she helped shape the nations social and sexual landscape. Award-winning journalist Rick Kogan was Ann Landerss last editor and close friend, and he paints a fascinating, full-bodied account of the triumphs, the wisdom, the courage, and the trials of one of the twentieth centurys most enduring icons -- including her painful lifelong feud with her identical twin sister, Dear Abby- her stubborn refusal to shy away from even the most controversial topics- and the tragic breakup of her own thirty-six-year marriage.

Filled with remarkable stories shared by people from all walks of life who were profoundly affected by the good sense and guidance of Ann Landers, Americas Mom is a moving tribute to a singular woman who has earned an eternal place in our culture ... and our hearts.
