About this item

"To be a mother in a post-9/11 world with a child whose name suggested an affiliation to terrorism; to keep my son safe against prejudice, raising him with love and care, but also ignorant about how to be a mother; these issues served the writing of this collection. A book about the shock of world events; the shock of becoming a mother; the shock of failing to be a mother in a system failing to provide support; it is about my love for my son. It is also a replay of my childhood, growing up with my mother who was, I think, psychic, and generally anxious about the future. Becoming a mother was an encounter with the real, and I have never recovered."
