9780044409281: Death of a Mother: Daughters' Stories

Most of us will experience the death of our mothers. Whether we are bereaved as young children or adults, it is one of the most profound upheavals we will ever undergo. This collection of over 30 non-fiction pieces by women spans a diverse range of emotions and experiences of bereavement, ranging from hatred and relief to deepest love and despair. The common theme for all is their eschewing of conventional wisdom, both about relations between mothers and daughters and about grief. Some pieces are funny, others very raw, but all are deeply felt.
