Description


"[Mom] bursts with stories that are unvarnished, sad, funny, wise, and most of all, very real."
-Chicago Tribune (Editor's Choice)

Featuring StoryCorps' most revealing stories on the subject, Mom looks across a diversity of experience to offer an entirely original portrait of motherhood. In conversations between parents and children, husbands and wives, siblings and friends, the life of the American mother unfolds. In these stories of profound joy and sadness, courage and despair, struggle and triumphs, we learn new truths about that most primal and sacred of bonds-the relationship between mother and child. With this vital contribution to the American storybook, StoryCorps has created a tribute to mothers that honors the meaning of family and the expansiveness of the human heart.
