The Whole Truth


No one ever talks about it like this.

It’s not that they don’t want to, and they might even start to, it’s just that they don’t really have time to get into it, between the diaper changes, the soccer practices and all the other interruptions that come along with the business of motherhood.

The brilliantly titled and hot-off-the press (just yesterday) Between Interruptions: 30 Women Tell the Truth About Motherhood (Key Porter Books, $32.95) is the first anthology of Canadian writing about motherhood and it dares to start the conversation about the huge transformation women experience when they become mothers, the choices and decisions they’ve faced, the identity/career/relationship crisis (hopefully not all at the same time), the gut-wrenching love for their children and many other thoughts, often left unspoken, when children’s lives interrupt our own.
