Summary
Named by the Guardian as one of our top ten writers of rural noir, Bonnie Jo Campbell is a keen observer of life and trouble in rural America, and her working-class protagonists can be at once vulnerable, wise, cruel, and funny. The strong but flawed women of Mothers, Tell Your Daughters must negotiate a sexually charged atmosphere as they love, honor, and betray one another against the backdrop of all the men in their world. Such richly fraught mother-daughter relationships can be lifelines, anchors, or they can sink a woman like a stone. In "My Dog Roscoe," a new bride becomes obsessed with the notion that her dead ex-boyfriend has returned to her in the form of a mongrel. In "Blood Work, 1999," a phlebotomist's desire to give away everything to the needy awakens her own sensuality. In "Home to Die," an abused woman takes revenge on her bedridden husband. In these fearless and darkly funny tales about women and those they love, Campbell's spirited American voice is at its most powerful

Summary
In this third short story collection from author Bonnie Jo Campbell, mothers and daughters feature heavily, weighing the consequences of bad choices, facing difficult situations in the present, and worrying about their futures. Marginalized women -- poor, alone, abused -- ruminate on their lives; some stories ultimately offer hope while others do not, a hallmark of Campbell's work. As with her other collections, the 16 works presented here are commanding. -- Description by Shauna Griffin
