Description - Sons And Mothers by Victoria 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.
