The women who populate Laura Rock Gaughan's debut collection, Motherish, veer from playful to distraught, reckless to restrained, anchored to unmoored. Gambling grandmas, athletes and organists, pregnant bus passengers and punitive bank tellers are pushed to the brink by Gaughan's distinctively precise prose, while they grapple with what it means to mother and be mothered. With various perspectives, Gaughan creates box after box--and actual chicken coops--for her characters to explode from, hide in, emerge, and ultimately transform.

Canadian-American writer Laura Rock Gaughan''s work has appeared in numerous magazines including the Antigonish Review and The New Quarterly. Born in California, Gaughan honed her craft in Lakefield, Ontario, where she currently lives and writes. Motherish is her debut collection of stories.
