My Mother Never Dies

(2009)
A collection of stories by

 
Nineteen stunning, disturbing short stories delve into the complex relationship between mothers and daughters In My Mother Never Dies, the literary provocateur Claire Castillon dissects the darkest aspects of the relationship between mothers and daughters. A woman tries so hard to be friends with her daughter that she begins to revert to her own adolescence; another woman finds her mother engaged in an illicit affair with a man they both know too well; a daughter rattles off all the reasons why she's disgusted with her invalid mother but realizes through her haze of teenage hatred that she is losing the only person who tells her the truth. Stunning, shocking, unflinching, and ultimately tender, My Mother Never Dies forces us to look at the worst and best of mothers and daughters. Like the work of Miranda July and A M Homes, Castillon won't let us avert our gaze from the terrible and true any more than from the beautiful and true - because it all reveals the depth of our need for each other.
