Tell-all subject speaks out

Surely you have all been following the saga of Amy Chua, author of a book called BATTLE HYMN OF THE TIGER MOTHER whose Wall Street Journal column about her parenting methods (one word: harsh) apparently earned her death threats (also one word: harsh!) I don't think I can handle reading the book myself, although curiosity is certainly driving me in that direction. Anyway, today's New York Post features a letter from one of Chua's daughters (now 18) defending her mother, which I sincerely hope was not under duress.

Irrelevant but interesting fact, Chua's husband (mocked gently in the WSJ for being the fun parent) is also a published author, INTERPRETATION OF MURDER novelist Jed Rubenfeld.
