Publisher's Summary

Oh no, I'm turning into my mother! Every woman is familiar with the poignant, funny, baffling, or horrifying echoes that resonate at that moment when she first hears her own mother's voice coming out of her mouth. But this moment of recognition is more than ironic: It's at the root of how we see ourselves, and how we plot and follow the arc that goes from childhood to motherhood. Together, Perri Klass and her mother, Sheila Solomon Klass, cover more than seven decades of daughterhood and motherhood. And although they grew up in dramatically different circumstances, they find that their lives have been shaped in strangely similar ways. In Every Mother Is a Daughter, Perri and Sheila tell their mother-daughter story, looking honestly at their own lives and at each other, with different perspectives, unique voices, and powerful insight, in the first co-written mother-daughter memoir.
