I'm Glad My Mom Died by Jennette McCurdy

Mothercare by Lynne Tillman

On Obligation, Love, Death, and Ambivalence // This is at once a cautionary tale, and also a reverential invitation for any caretaker who can relate to suddenly becoming responsible for the life management practices of a parent, loved or not. This story may be helpful, informative, consoling, or upsetting, and it never fails to underscore how impossible it is to get the job done completely right.
