Product Details

Praise

“A confession of a daughter. An extraordinarily rich and sensitive narrative, like a good wine.”—Yoko Ono

“As young activists search for ways to define their own movements, Kate Millett contributes a novel idea: Think outside yourself and fight for your mother’s, or father’s—or grandmother’s or grandfather’s—rights. Eventually, they will be your own.”—The Nation

“This work, a meditation on both the perils of mother-daughter love and old age, is perhaps her warmest and most universal to date.”—Independent

“One of the Best Books of 2001: Written in compelling prose, this poignant memoir of her mother’s final years and the writer’s struggle to face losing the most influential person in her life reestablishes Millet as a major American literary voice … An essential purchase.”—Library Journal

Mother Millett captures the strength of the bond that overcomes conflicts that inevitably arise between two fiercely independent women, particularly when they are mother and daughter.”—Bloomsbury Review

“You’ll argue with Kate Millett as you read along, but only because she’s succeeded in making you think.”—Gay and Lesbian Review

“No, it doesn’t make for a soothing bedtime read. But imagine the person who could write serenely and soothingly about such an experience—what sort of person would that be? Of course, one could choose not to write the book at all. But this is stuff we need to know.”—Women’s Review of Books

“Millett’s book captures the experience of a parent’s old age remarkably well, with a strength and grace of which Mother Millet could be proud.”—Washington Post Book World
