    I thought this books was pretty good, but not excellent. As someone who has some difficult interactions with my mother, I was actually looking forward to reading this. However, it oversold - a lot of the stories were more just personal memoirs/essays, rather than really deep meditation on mothers and daughters.

    Short story collection. Bit of a mixed bag- couple of beauties though.
