Twenty Stories of Contemporary MotherhoodBook - 1996 | 1st ed.
"Mothers is a belated first: a collection of short stories about motherhood, by writers who are mothers. These twenty stories, each told from a mother's point of view, evoke every stage of the journey, from pregnancy and birth on through the childhood years, adolescence, and adulthood. Together, they depict the complexities of mothering in America today as women are actually experiencing it." "The works gathered here by Perri Klass, Laurie Colwin, Mary Gordon, Sue Miller, and fifteen others constitute a step toward a new "mothers" literature that puts to rest the long-held myth that has separated motherhood from a woman's creative activity."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.
