Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 081181629X, Paperback)

How does modern fiction approach the fierce yet tender nature of mother-daughter relationships? In Mothers & Daughters, editor Alberto Manguel has collected 20 compelling short stories that reveal mothers through the eyes of their daughters, and vice versa.

In "Mama," Bastard Out of Carolina author Dorothy Allison's moving tribute to her mother, Allison reflects on her mother's life by remembering the physical details of her mother's body and comparing them to her own: "Nothing marks me so much her daughter as my hands--the way they are aging, the veins coming up through skin already thin. I tell myself they are beautiful as they recreate my mama's flesh in mine." Sara Jeannette Duncan's "A Mother in India" questions the biological bond between mother and daughter. And in "Lolita," Dorothy Parker turns her usual sardonic eye to a social butterfly mother and her drab, shapeless daughter who ends up winning the chisel-jawed heartthrob. In Bonnie Burchard's "Women of Influence" a grown daughter becomes the go-between for two sisters--her dying mother and her dying aunt: "I realize I have not been asked to bring my mother's forgiveness here. Or have I? Is my mother counting on me to pass it on or to live with it? I don't want her compromised." Each unique, lovely story has elements that will resonate with mothers and daughters everywhere. --Ericka Lutz
