Some brief overview of book

An "extraordinary" (The Sunday Times) debut of unnerving beauty, Chris Powers short story collection Mothers evokes the magic and despair of the essential human longing for purpose. Chris Powers stories are peopled by men and women who find themselves at crossroads or dead endscharacters who search without knowing what they seek. Their paths lead them to thresholds, bridges, rivers, and sites of mysterious, irresistible connection to the past.

A woman uses her mothers old travel guide, aged years beyond relevance, to navigate on a journey to nowhere; a stand-up comic with writers block performs a fateful gig at a cocaine-fueled bachelor party; on holiday in Greece, a father must confront the limits to which he can keep his daughters safe. Braided throughout is the story of Eva, a daughter, wife, and mother, whose search for a self and place of belonging tracks a devastating path through generations. Ranging from remote English moors to an ancient Swedish burial ground to a hedonistic Mexican wedding, the stories in Mothers lay bare the emotional and psychic damage of life, love, and abandonment.

Suffused with yearning, Powers transcendent prose expresses a profound ache for vanished pasts and uncertain futures.
