"[Mom] bursts with stories that are unvarnished, sad, funny, wise, and most of all, very real."
-Chicago Tribune (Editor's Choice)


Featuring StoryCorps' most revealing stories on the subject, Mom looks across a diversity of experience to offer an entirely original portrait of motherhood. In conversations between parents and children, husbands and wives, siblings and friends, the life of the American mother unfolds.
