Most mothers don't have time for long conversations. They may want them, crave them, begin them again and again — but they are being constantly interrupted by their partners, work, and the day-to-day chaos of busy lives. Between Interruptions is a remarkable collection of original essays that explores what is unspoken, cut off, or lost in those interrupted conversations. The book asks what happens when children's lives interrupt their mothers'. What prayers, what cries, what taboo thoughts are suddenly left unspoken? Laid bare are the exhilarating, sometimes heartbreaking true confessions and secret longings of mothers of all ages, cultures, and classes. Marina Jiménez struggles with her decision to return to her job as a journalist — in a war zone. Carrie-Anne Moss brings readers into her home during her self-imposed, 40-day seclusion after the birth of her first son. Elizabeth Renzetti and Katrina Onstad search for friends in motherhood. Estee Klar-Wolfond finds perfection in autism. Provocative, funny, and honest, Between Interruptions highlights the transformation to motherhood and its impact on women's identity, ambition, and relationships.
