About The Book
The writings in this collection, fiction and nonfiction, are written from the perspectives of Irish American mothers and daughters. From Angela’s Ashes to Riverdance, Irish literature and art are capturing the American imagination as never before. Ireland’s literary legacy has taken root in American soil, and this dazzling anthology captures the spirit of this Celtic renaissance.Motherland presents a poignant collection of Irish American women’s writings about the mother-daughter bond in all its variety: sometimes a source of strength and solace, sometimes of sorrow and resentment, but always and everywhere central to the author’s identity.
Acclaimed anthologist Caledonia Kearns has collected more than twenty pieces of fiction and nonfiction to create a rich tapestry of emotion, humor, and truth, featuring the work of contemporary writers, such as Anna Quindlen, Mary Gordon, Doris Kearns Goodwin, Mary Cantwell, Martha Manning, Rosemary Mahoney, Susan Minot, and Maureen Howard, along with voices from past eras like Margaret Sanger, Mother Jones, and M.F.K. Fisher.
This book speaks directly to the hearts of every mother and daughter. Irish or not, readers will find treasures to cherish, wisdom to live by, and words that sing with the spirit of the Celtic soul. It’s a wonderful gift for St. Patrick’s Day, Mother’s Day, or any occasion when eloquence is the order of the day.
