The Bookslinger app has been updated with a new story!
This week’s story is from Mothers and Other Monsters by Maureen F. McHugh, published by Small Beer Press. In her luminous, long-awaited debut collection, award-winning novelist Maureen F. McHugh wryly and delicately examines the impacts of social and technological shifts on families. Using beautiful, deceptively simple prose, she illuminates the relationship between parents and children and the expected and unexpected chasms that open between generations. McHugh’s characters—her Alzheimers-afflicted parents or her smart and rebellious teenagers—are always recognizable.
