New in fine dust jacket. Tight binding with clean text. New First edition; first printing. D/j has shelfwear. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. 203 p. Audience: General/trade. This account of a mother-daughter tie, and the ways in which that fierce tie shapes and suffuses the daughter's life of work and love, is a tale for workers and lovers in general to ponder with care. It is passionately, rambunctiously told; as folks would say in the Bronx I remember, That Gornick has some mouth on her! --Dorothy Dinnerstein
Publishers Weekly, 1988-02-26 This supple, energized memoir chronicles Gornick's (Essays in Feminism) explosive relationship with her mother and her unsuccessful battle to reject a legacy of hatred, depression and humiliation. Gornick is ``an able storyteller with a keen ear for dialogue,'' but, according to PW, her work bogs down with ``therapy-talk and self-indulgence.'' (May)
