Real Mothers

By Audrey Thomas

In Real Mothers, a collection of short stories, Audrey Thomas journeys to France, Greece and Africa; she also writes about Galiano Island, B.C., where she lived while these stories were taking shape. Real Mothers concerns itself with women who, in one way or another, are mothers; with mothers and daughters; with mothers and husbands—or lovers; and with mothers alone.

“These stories are for … anyone who admires a writer in masterly control of her material.”
Globe and Mail

“Thomas demands more of her readers than most writers, but the rewards are much greater too.”
