So thrilled about the glowing review by Rhena Tantisunthorn over at Literary Mama. She quotes from several of the essays from the book. I love how she describes what The Good Mother Myth is trying to do:
“It is as if we are museum-goers hypnotized by images of the Madonna and child. And the only way to undo the spell, to break our gaze from this unrealistic prototype, is to reach out to each other, to confront each other with our own realities. ‘Here I am! A good-enough mother!’ these essayists seem to shout.”
Exactly. Read more of Tantisunthorn’s review.
