Women Writers Talk About Having Sons and Raising Me. Mothers often look at their sons in bewilderment, struggling to understand what makes them tick

Mothers often look at their sons in bewilderment, struggling to understand what makes them tick. This collection of mostly original essays describes how some mothers came to terms-or did not come to terms-with these aliens sharing space in their homes. Stevens (a graduate of the Iowa Writers’ Workshop) is the divorced mother of two sons and began to organize this collection after her boys were grown, when she finally had time to reflect on their lives together and what she had learned from them.

But the mother and son couple have vowed to fight for their right to have a sexual relationship and are appealing to. .Cristina is hoping to raise enough money to get a high profile attorney to defend the case and says the couple is willing to fight all the way to the US Supreme Court.

If Elizabeth Ferguson had her way, she’d spend her days savoring good books, cooking great meals, and waiting for the love of her life to walk in the door. But it’s not a man she’s waiting for, it’s her daughter, Rosie-her wild-haired, smart-mouthed, and s alter ego. With Rosie around, the days aren’t quite so long, but Elizabeth can’t keep the realities of the world at bay, and try as she might, she can’t shield Rosie from its dangers or mysteries.

As a misandrist (i.e. a bad feminist) who's raising a little man on my own, these stories really helped put my son's masculinity into perspective. I highly recommend this book to any parent.

Perhaps this collection resonated more deeply with me than other reviewers because I consider myself a feminist *and* a mother of two spirited sons. My eldest son is only five years old and his nemesis/favorite person in the known universe a mere three and a half, but this rich book struck a chord deep within me that has not been played enough as a busy mother. I couldn't get enough of these esays. I am still hungry for more, so I pick up my pen and write a little bit everyday now.

As with many short story / essay collections, it is hard to review the book overall as the individual contributions are uneven.

In this case, almost all are moving and at least some will touch a heartstring (or raw nerve!) in every mother.

Many play the feminist angle, which I felt may be somewhat misplaced in a mother-son relationship.

A couple I'd already read in other collections (e.g. `Toddler'), including one of my personal favourites, Jonathan Bing by Priscilla Leigh MacKinley, about a mother who lost her sight during childbirth and has to adapt to becoming blind and the responsibility of responsibility of caring for a new baby at the same time ... the thought alone makes me shudder, but she writes about it beautifully and it was a joy to read again.

All-in-all, I enjoyed this book and would recommend it.

I found this anthology wonderfully refreshing, and very validating. It gives affirmation to the intense emotional endeavor of raising a young man, and allows a communal feeling with other mothers on the same journey. The stories are poignantly shared, and are passionately detailed. I recommend this book to any Mother raising a son!
