Between Interruptions is a remarkable collection of original essays by Canadian writers, edited by Cori Howard, that asks what becomes of us when our children’s lives interrupt our own. What prayers, what cries, what taboo thoughts are suddenly left unspoken?
Provocative, funny and honest, Between Interruptions highlights the differences and similarities between mothers today and generations past. It is, without a doubt, a conversation worth having.
“I laughed again when I read Katrina Onstad’s ‘Searching for Mommyland (Part ll),’ in which she stares down the demon Free Enterprise. “Motherhood will make a consumer out of you, and therefore a sucker. It will make you feel like that $1,200 stroller is the choice of the better parent, like releasing doves from cages is the choice of the better bride. That borrowed stroller isn’t just stained with old baby puke, but with neglect. It means you don’t love right, you doveless loser.” Anyone who has the guts to write, “Baby yoga ($15) is retarded,” is brave. And funny.”
