SUMMARY

The perfect gift for Mother's Day--a beautifully jacketed hardcover anthology of literary stories by a wide range of writers about every aspect of motherhood, and about our most elemental human relationship from birth to death.   Lydia Davis, Amy Bloom, Colm T ib n, E. L. Doctorow, Ron Carlson, A. S. Byatt, Harold Brodkey, Antonya Nelson, Barbara Kingsolver, Aimee Bender and Lorrie Moore--here are stories from these and many other writers about having mothers and being mothers, about loving, losing, and leaving our mothers--in voices and circumstances that range from the lyrical to the satirical, from the fantastic to the indelibly real, from utterly hilarious to absolutely heartbreaking.
