Terrific Mother: Faber Stories Lorrie Moore

£3.50

Adrienne is living in a puritanical age, when the best compliment a childless woman can get is: ‘You’d make a terrific mother’. That’s when she goes to her friends’ Labor Day picnic and accidentally kills their baby. The shock of this scene is expertly packed into two brief paragraphs. What follows is Adrienne’s retreat from life and her attempt to return to it. Her sharp scepticism about the people around her is achingly funny. Yet beyond derision there is forgiveness and something along the lines of love.
