Mother-Talk is a collection of stories of twenty-four mothers—twelve who found out a daughter was a lesbian and twelve who learned that a child, once a biological female, was planning to transition to male—capturing the
complexity of coming to terms with the loss of a daughter who has changed sex or an anticipated relationship with a daughter, now a lesbian, who lives in a different world and will lead a different life. This groundbreaking book will help other mothers as well as lesbian daughters and FTM transgender children to understand their own mothers, their
changed lives, and their determination to remain connected.
