Riding Shotgun: Women Write About Their Mothers

Ridiging Shotgun

This anthology, edited by Kate Kysar, includes my essay “When We Were In the Projects,” which was later woven into my book Body Geographic. REISSUED in paperback, February 2017.

In this volume and broad range of women authors write about their mothers. Riding Shotgun stands out from the overly sentimental books that show up every spring (like mayflies, but slightly more long-lived), because it is a collection of memoirs and creative nonfiction that’s worth reading, even if one’s maternal relationship is slightly problematic.”  ~Kel Munger, Newsreview.com
