“Finally, a look at grandmothering that is decidedly unsentimental. These clear-eyed essays offer humor and insight as they take on the multigenerational lives many of us now lead.” -Cokie Roberts, author of We Are Our Mothers’ Daughters

In this groundbreaking collection, twenty-seven smart, gutsy writers explode the cliches and tell the real stories about what it’s like to be a grandmother in today’s world. Among the contributors:

  • Judith Viorst exposes the high-stakes competition for Most Adored Nana.
  • Anne Roiphe learns to keep her mouth shut and her opinions to herself.
  • Elizabeth Berg marvels at witnessing her child give birth to her child.
  • Judith Guest confesses her failed attempt to be the perfect grandmother.
  • Jill Nelson grapples with unforeseen mother-daughter tensions.
  • Ellen Gilchrist reveals how grandparenthood has eased her fear of death.
  • Beverly Donofrio makes amends for her shortcomings as a teenage mother.
  • Bharati Mukherjee transcends her Hindu upbringing to embrace her adopted Chinese granddaughters.
  • Mary Pipher deconstructs the role of grandmother in our changing world.
