From the Back Cover:

Many months ago Faye Moskowitz set out to put together a collection of writings about mothers and daughters by Jewish American women. She embarked on a quest, not only for the makings of a book, but for an ineluctable something she thought she had long ago lost.

Review:

A rich collection —Publishers Weekly

"Amazing. . . Her Face in the Mirror talks to us with the combined voices of many wise daughters and mothers who are trying to make sense of the mystery of their exquisite bond." —Belles Lettres

"This collection was a gift to me, and will be for others, in understanding ourselves and those we love." —Dr. Elaine Reuben, president of the Jewish Study Center in Moment

"Fearlessly, Faye Moskowitz has drawn together fifty-six Jewish mothers and daughters in an eloquent mosaic of memoirs by eminent contemporary American authors. Just whom each contributor sees in the mirror is pictured with a painful honesty." —The Columbus Dispatch

'You don't have to be Jewish to appreciate Faye Moskowitz's work. All you need is a mind, a heart, a mother, and a need for warmth and tradition.' —Susan Stamberg, National Public Radio

Book Description Beacon Press, United States, 1995. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Relationships between mothers and daughters are exceptionally complex for all women. An uneasy balance between the fear of letting go and the desire for independence, the love shared between mothers and daughters can be volatile, tender, and exasperating. Her Face in the Mirror explores this most difficult and affirming relationship in the lives of Jewish women through poems, stories, and personal essays. Daughters, many of them first- and second-generation Americans, write of frustration with what they see as their mothers limited lives; their mothers write of fears for their daughters whose lives seem so different from their own. For many the relationship is shaped by the feeling of being an outsider - as a Jew in America and a woman in Judaism - and it is always informed by the collective memory of the Holocaust. With passionate and resonant words, these writers search to be reconciled with their mothers and daughters and, ultimately, with their own identities. An extraordinary collection, Her Face in the Mirror is destined to become a classic. Seller Inventory # AAV9780807036150
