Writers and Their Mothers
Edited by Dale Salwak
Twenty-two prominent novelists, poets, and literary critics share deeply personal meditations about the profound and frequently perplexing bond between writer and mother in this compelling book. Among the distinguished contributors are Ian McEwan, Martin Amis, Rita Dove, Andrew Motion, Margaret Drabble and Anthony Thwaite. Through detailed original essays and poems they bring to life the thoughts, work, loves, friendships, passions and, above all, the influence of their mothers upon their literary endeavors.
