Description

With A New Epilogue by editor Barbara Graham In this groundbreaking collection, twenty-seven smart, gutsy writers explode the cliches and tell the real stories about what it's like to be a grandmother in today's world. Among the contributors: Judith Viorst exposes the high-stakes competition for Most Adored Nana. Anne Roiphe learns to keep her mouth shut and her opinions to herself. Elizabeth Berg marvels at witnessing her child give birth to her child. Judith Guest confesses her failed attempt to be the perfect grandmother. Jill Nelson grapples with unforeseen mother-daughter tensions. Ellen Gilchrist reveals how grandparenthood has eased her fear of death. Beverly Donofrio makes amends for her shortcomings as a teenage mother. Bharati Mukherjee transcends her Hindu upbringing to embrace her adopted Chinese granddaughters. Mary Pipher deconstructs the role of grandmother in our changing world.
