Sons and Mothers by Matthew Glendinning

The contributors to this work explore the relationship and bond between mother and son. Seven mothers and seven sons tread on emotional minefields—some gingerly and some with great anger. A priest, an old man famous for his comic antics, and a newsreader all write about their mothers, while a mother remembers sending her sons away to boarding school, a stepmother tells what it's like to inherit a son, and a young mother portrays the utterly helpless devotion she feels for her infant son. The collection includes contributions from: Diran Adebayo, Spike Milligan, Jon Snow, Adam Mars-Jones, Michael Bywater; Jan Dalley, Sonia Melchett, Sophie Parkin, Kate Saunders, Jill Dawson, Father Seed, Phineas Foster, Susan Richards, and Jenny Craddock.
