Untying The Apron

Untying The Apron

Daughters Remember Mothers of The 1950s

By Lorri Neilsen Glenn

Mothers of the 1950s were wasp-waisted, dutiful, serene, and tied to the kitchen with apron strings. Or so we thought. This collection of searing and startling poetry and prose unties the stereotype and reveals women who were strong, wild, talented, wise, mad, creative, desperate, angry, courageous, bitter, tenacious, reckless and beautiful, sometimes all at once. The contributors include multi-award-winning poets, novelists, and essayists, as well as compelling new literary voices.

Reading the anthology is a consciousness-raising exercise. The details make the writing good and true. The commonalities of experience make it political.
