In My Mother's Closet: An Invitation to Remember Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Forty-three accomplished women recall their mother's closets, where they tried on clothes, jewelry, and shoes and imagined the world they would one day enter, the world of being a woman. When Eugenia Zukerman invited these women to talk with her about memories of their mother's closets, she unlatched a floodgate that goes far beyond clothing and possessions.

This is a unique approach to an exploration of the intense, dynamic relationship between mothers and their daughters, tapping into myths, mysteries and rites of passage. The memories open the door to the special bond that belongs uniquely to mothers, daughters, sisters and girlfriends.

Review:

"[An] appealing volume....[T]he memories may be of particular interest to baby boomers, who will recognize much of the jewelry, clothing, and lifestyles mentioned. Best of all, these moving pieces capture those moments when girls realize that their mothers are mysterious, complicated people, not just parents." Gillian Engberg, Booklist
