An Infinite Mirror

Reflections on Our Parents and Ourselves

by Kate Cassidy and M.F. Robinson

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Overview
This is an anthology of work - fiction, non-fiction, poetry and more - inspired by parents and parenthood. The richness of so many stories (especially family stories) often comes from reflecting on the hardest of memories. Past events give our current stories greater depth and meaning. A joyful event becomes all the brighter when contrasted with a sorrowful time in the past or one that may loom in the future. This anthology is not simply a tribute to the perfect mother, the perfect father or the perfect child. Though the writing included presents many examples of wonderful parents and inspiring parent-child relationships, we recognize that no one is perfect, and thus, no relationship is perfect. There is breadth of human experience here to share. An Infinite Mirror is a celebration of the joys of parenthood, childhood and the enduring gift of a parent's love. It is also a celebration of our capacity for forgiveness, personal growth, healing and change. When we are vulnerable, we not only produce some of our best writing, but we are also our best selves.
