Summary
In this candid look at our relationships with our mothers, fifteen authors write about subjects that they wish they had talked to their mothers about. While some of the writers in this book are estranged from their mothers, others are extremely close. Topics vary widely: from growing up with a deaf mother, to seeking a conversation that won't be interrupted, to relationships affected by the mother's abusive partner. At times humorous, at times tragic, the authors all seek to heal relationships with others and, perhaps most important, with themselves. -- adapted from jacket
Summary
Inspired by the editor's 2017 Longreads essay, an anthology by fifteen literary contributors explores the painful subjects that they cannot discuss with their mothers and how toxic codes of silence have shaped their writing and relationships
