Most mothers don’t have time for long conversations.
They may want them, crave them, begin them again and again--but they are constantly interrupted by kids, partners, work, and the day-to-day of busy lives. Between Interruptions is a remarkable collection of original essays by Canadian women that explores what is unspoken, cut off or lost in those interrupted conversations. It asks what becomes of us when our children's lives interrupt our own. What prayers, what cries, what taboo thoughts are suddenly left unspoken?
Laid bare in this collection are the vivid, gut-wrenching, exhilarating and sometimes heartbreaking true confessions and secret longings of mothers across all ages, cultures and classes. Marina Jimenez struggles with her decision to return to her job as a journalist--in a war zone. Carrie-Anne Moss lets us into her home during her self-imposed, forty-day seclusion after the birth of her first son. Chantal Kreviazuk learns to surrender to the limitations of motherhood. Joanna Streetly struggles to find a balance between protecting and letting go. Elizabeth Renzetti and Katrina Onstad search for friends in mommyland. And Estee Klar-Wolfond finds perfection in autism.
