In the tradition of Sisters, the bestselling coffee-table book that featured photographs of and essays by sisters both famous and not, comes Hollywood Moms, showcasing the photography of Joyce Ostin with an introduction by Carrie Fisher. Among the mothers and daughters included are Goldie Hawn and Kate Hudson (on the cover); Rosanna and Patricia Arquette holding a photo of their deceased mom, Mardiningish Arquette; Dyan Cannon and Jennifer Grant; and Jennifer Lopez with her mom, Guadalupe. Among the best are apparently unposed, private moments, such as Rosie O'Donnell concentrating intently on her daughter, Chelsea. With a projected first printing of 50,000 copies, this book has the makings of a hot-selling Mother's Day gift. ( May)
