In My Mother's Closet : An Invitation to Remember By Eugenia Zuckerman
Call Number: HQ759 .Z854 2003
A mother's closet - fragrant and filled with the mysterious accoutrements of adult femininity - seems magically to draw a daughter into its soft folds.
Renowned flutist Eugenia Zuckerman collected more than forty essays by women from many walks of life and across several generations. Contributors who remember forays into their mother's closets are accomplished women such as Leslie Stahl, Judy Collins, Carrie Fisher, or violist Nokuthula Ngwenyama.
There is a silver thread of familiar emotions and experiences that weaves itself through the delicate and inviting thoughts on the pages of In My Mother's Closet: An Invitation to Remember. Thus any woman who as a girl crept into her mother's closet - for comfort or to daydream of becoming a woman-will delight in reading these brief memoirs.
Designed to be read in brief sessions and complete with snapshots from family albums, this book is truly intriguing.
