Content descriptions

General Note: Includes P.S. insights, interviews & more (15 pages).
Summary, etc.: Telling the entwined stories of Lois, an ambitious opera singer, and her daughter, Elizabeth, an aspiring writer who came of age in the forbidding shadow of her often-absent, always larger-than-life mother. In a tour de force of storytelling and human empathy, mother and daughter pull back the curtain on lifelong secrets, challenging and interrupting each other, defending their own behavious, brandishing or swallowing their pride, and, ultimately, coming to understand each other in a way that feels both extraordinary and universal.
