One of the biggest catalysts in any story, and yet also one of the most underrated characters, mothers have always had a strong presence in literature and non-fiction. In this episode ahead of Mother's Day, we discuss some of our favourite mothers in books, including classics, literary fiction, and memoirs. We also touch on why mothers can be complicated to write about, as well as the trope of the Bad, or Complicated Mom. And then in Footnotes, we explore how we feel about some of our favourite artists exploring different art forms (Neil Gaiman making music! Tom Hanks writing novels! You get the picture).
