Well, I’m not one for holidays, let alone Hallmark card holidays, but I did quite enjoy mother’s day this year. It started with a text from my fifteen year old filled with many colorful emoticons and ended with burning a tic off my dog and folding three loads of laundry with all socks present and accounted for. Somewhere in between, I stretched out in the backyard with a book I’ve been dying to read: Are You My Mother by Alison Bechdel, author of one of my favorite books Fun Home. Alison, sadly, is not my client. She warmly thanks her agent in the acknowledgments and it’s not me. Which proves how much I really love this writer/illustrator. Anyway, if you’ve ever experienced any mama drama (or in my case if that’s all you’ve experienced), you will love this brilliantly mordant articulation of mother-daughter angst.
