"Mother knows best" hardly applies to Mildred Abramowitz Kirschernbaum, the ascerbic, hypercritical and sometimes downright nasty mother of documentarian Gayle Kirschernbaum. With wit, humor and compassion, Gayle, a bulldog of a daughter, is determined to understand, forgive and cherish her mother before it's too late. But how? Forgiveness is easy to roll off the lips, but what if you'd been criticized and made to feel deficient all your life by the one person who means the most? What if the only safe love is the four-legged kind? Gayle and Mildred travel the road to forgiveness with alternately hilarious and poignant stops along the way. Gayle's journals, starting at age eight, reveal an acutely sensitive child who can't understand what she's done wrong. Was she born into the wrong family? Should she have been a boy? Gerald, Gayle's downtrodden father, seems to think so. So does her therapist. You won't want to miss this delightful, searingly honest and intimate mother-daughter story.
