When Jane Lazarre's "The Mother Knot" was first published in 1976, literature about motherhood written by mothers themselves was scarce. Since then, Lazarre's memoir has become a modern feminist classic - as relevant today as it was twenty years ago. Chronicling the early years of her eldest son's life, Lazarre presents a compelling, intimate portrait of early motherhood as a time of profound crisis, both physical and emotional. She writes honestly about the shock and pain of giving birth, the total exhaustion of caring for a demanding newborn, the struggle to reclaim a sense of self, the altered state of her marriage, and her chaotic feelings of fear, joy, helplessness, resentment, guilt, and love. Interwoven into Lazarre's struggle to become a 'good mother' are her memories of her own mother, who died when she was seven years old; the need to claim her professional identity as a writer; and the complexities of being part of an interracial family.
