From Elizabeth Podnieks, ed., Mediating Moms: Mothers in Popular Culture (McGill-Queen’s University Press, spring 2012) — Joanne Muzak deserves special recognition for her extraordinary talents as our copyeditor. Contributors overwhelmingly noted in correspondence with me her rare attention to detail and the high quality of her perceptive suggestions for last-stage revisions. Her experience as a copyeditor coupled with her obvious knowledge of our broad field has greatly strengthened the collection. I am indebted to her for her painstaking labour and for her enthusiastic support of this project.
