Still Here Thinking of You, A Second Chance with Our Mothers, a collaborative memoir
Vicki Addesso, Susan Hodara, Joan Potter, Lori Toppel
"Our mothers, the ever-present measure of ourselves and the choices we've made, shape us even after they’re gone. These four courageous writers take on the nearly impossible task of writing about their mothers, exploring the indelible yet ever-changing terrain of maternal memory. Their stories are pierced with candor, regret and love—and will make you pick up the phone to call your mom, or make you wish you still could."
––Judith Dupré, Author & Humanities Public Scholar, One World Trade Center
"What I loved about the memoir anthology Still Here Thinking of You: a Second Chance with Our Mothers is this same sort of unity of form and excellent substance, which made the themes of the book—regret, gratitude, discovery, and resurrection—rise to the surface like rich cream."
––Jennifer Jean, The Mom Egg
"These memoirs hit close to the bone. They're about misunderstandings, secrets, and sacrifices, but most of all, love."
––Vanessa Williams, actress, singer, author
