Resumen:

Listen to Your Mother :

Fiercely irreverent, thought-provoking, hilarious, and edgy - a spirited wake-up call about modern-day mothering

In 2010, Ann Imig decided Mother's Day was lacking: instead of being solely a retail-driven holiday, the focus should be family. By bringing our community together to share personal stories about our mothers, we could get back to the core of why mothering is important. That year, she organized a live reading, and so 'Listen to Your Mother' was born. Now it's a rapidly growing movement that's sweeping the nation.

Like the live readings, the anthology Listen to Your Mother is a brutally honest look at modern motherhood. It showcases the experiences of ordinary people of different races, genders, and ages, and takes readers on a journey through motherhood in all of its complexity, diversity, and humor.

Acutely stimulating, and filled with pathos and candor, the contributors' stories share their experiences with adoption, assimilation, and emptying nests; first-time motherhood, foster parenting, and infertility; LGBTQ parenting, special-needs parenting, and surrogacy; step-mothering, never mothering, and mothering through illness. Their essays are devastatingly funny, refreshingly edgy, and deeply thought-provoking; they are the collective voice of mothers among us. Whether you are one, have one, or know one, Listen to Your Mother is an emotional whirlwind that is guaranteed to entertain, amuse, and enlighten.
