My initial inspiration for the book came from Lynda Barry's What It Is, which asks the reader to write about "other people's mothers" remembered from childhood. As with so much of my writing, though, my mind kept turning to my own mother and the ways in which she mothered (or didn't mother) each of her seven children. I began looking at old photographs of her, and as I did, this project was born.
