Between Mothers and Daughters

Stories Across a Generation
Edited by Susan Koppelman

Foreword by Alix Kates Shulman

This multicultural collection of 18 stories written between the 1840s and the 1980s explores an ancient relationship with fresh vision. In these stories, mothers and daughters describe their conflicts and consolations, their trusts and mistrusts, their loves and their hates.

"This is both an entertaining and insightful collection of short stories—each one well-written, and almost all sure to strike a pang of familiarity."

Boston Herald

“This book derives its coherence and power not as a repository of historically representative material, useful as that is, but rather from the illumination of poignant aspects of the relations between mothers and daughters and from the reverberating theme of exploitation of women by men in a patriarchal society.”
