Mothers of the 1950s were wasp-waisted, dutiful, serene, and tied to the kitchen with apron strings. Or so we thought. This collection of searing and startling poetry and prose unties the stereotype and reveals women who were strong, wild, talented, wise, mad, creative, desperate, angry, courageous, bitter, tenacious, reckless and beautiful, sometimes all at once. The contributors include multi-award-winning poets, novelists, and essayists, as well as compelling new literary voices.
Consider this collection a kaffeeklatsch, post-war mothers gathered to reveal their resilience, hope, anger, frustration, madness, despair, happiness, humour, zaniness, mystery, and light.
