A multi-genre, multicultural anthology of poetry, stories, creative nonfiction, and letters, written by 52 outstanding voices in contemporary American literature. The selections are gutsy, humorous, and lyrical. Section I, Call Me, Even if You're Happy, recounts the difficult task of mothers bidding farewell to their daughters: feeling apprehensive, yet proud to have raised young women who can fend for themselves. Section II, Hello, Mother, Goodbye, offers tender reflections on leaving home, as well as stories about caring for aging mothers, about grieving and healing, and about adoption. Contributors: Betty Adcock, Deedee Agee, Lauren K. Alleyne, Maggie Anderson, Jeanette Cabanis-Brewin, Corinna Lynette Byer, Kathryn Stripling Byer, Andree Chedid, Marilyn Chin, Lucille Clifton, Judy Pfau Cochran, Moira Crone, Rita Dove, Janice Eidus, Diane Gilliam, Alice Friman, Tereze Gluck, Sarah Gorham, Joy Harjo, Brenda Hillman, Colette Inez, Jessie L.
