In this Wising Up Anthology, fifty writers explore-with zest, angst, humor, humility, anger, and love-through stories, poems, memoirs and creative non-fiction, our constantly changing and, hopefully, maturing relationships with those we raised and those who raised us.

What defines adulthood nowadays? Or ever? In particular when do we see our own children as adults? When they are older than we were at the age we had them? When they have children of their own? Are fully self-supporting? What about the prematurely adult children some of us were or tried to be-where have they gone? And the lost and needy children in us? Are they still active? When our parents are failing, what is an adult to adult relationship then? When we have been completely dependent on someone-or fully responsible for them-is full parity ever possible? Desirable?
