Mothers Talk Back by Margaret Dragu, Sarah Sheard, and Susan Swan, ECW Press

Mothers Talk Back: Momz Radio

Dragu, Margaret

  • Humorous, ribald, powerful, and filled with wisdom, anecdotes, and shared affrmations, this collection of voices — single and working moms, moms creating extended families, a mom with a special-needs child, moms trying to balance their needs against those of their children — celebrates the quiet heroism of mothers. Inspired by Margaret Dragu’s radio program, Mothers Talk Back features fifteen true accounts of mothering — not the baby-blue-and-pink, sanitized nursery rhyme presented in the popular media, but explorations of the enormous (and underacknowledged) transformation that motherhood brings to a woman's sense of self, her mate, her body, and her connection to mothers throughout history.
  • Artist and writer Margaret Dragu lives on the Fraser River in B.C. Torontonians Sheard and Swan are both novelists and editors. All three are mothers themselves.
