How I Learned to Cook and Other Writings on Complex Mother-Daughter Relationships
Margo Perin (ed)
Many women spend their lives trying to figure out just how they are like -- or unlike -- their mothers. In this elegant collection, women authors examine the most complicated of family relationships. Daughters come to grips with their mothers, whose own lives sometimes stood in the way of their ability -- or desire -- to fulfill society’s expectations of a good mother. And along with the apocryphal “good mother” comes the myth of the “good daughter”: these writers question those assumptions by exploring the darkness and ambiguity that often permeate this challenging relationship. With essays by Jamaica Kincaid, Paula Fox, Vivian Gornick, Joyce Maynard, Kim Chernin, Alice Walker, Ruth Kluger, Kate Braverman, Rosemary Daniell, Nawal El Saadawi, etc.
