About this title


An introspective, witty study of the relationship between mothers and sons explores the changing connections between parent and child, from childhood to adulthood, explaining how men separate from their mothers, how they deal with their feelings, and the impact on their lives.


Based on interviews with more than 100 men, journalist Nicholas Weinstock has written the answer to the question mothers and adult sons often ponder: "Whatever happened to the easy love and eager intimacy between us?" Behind the detached and whiskered faces of manhood are the stories of how mothers still profoundly shape the lives of their sons. We hear the heartbreaking tales of boys who felt forced to wrench themselves from the comforting love of mothers in order to become men. And we hear of sons who were booted out of the warm nest of their mother's affections before they felt ready. Beneath these riveting stories of tenderness, tough love, and loyalty are the feelings of guilt, remorse, and longing that tug at the souls of men. Here lies a distillation of compassion and forgiveness for mothers and sons of all ages.
