In this poignant multicultural collection of short stories by American women writers, mothers and daughters describe their conflicts and consolations, their trusts and mistrusts, their loves and hates. Including stories written between the 1840s and the 1990s, Between Mothers and Daughters explores the maternal and filial bonds between women and investigates the practice of family, exposing the complicated, bittersweet truths of women's intergenerational relationships. Newly revised and updated, this edition of the classic anthology includes several new stories and an expanded introduction that revisits this ancient relationship with fresh vision and insight.
