NPR driveway moments: radio stories that won't let you go. Moms. by Sagal, Peter, 200 pages, read by Kira, on 03/31/2012

I’d listened to another NPR driveway moments, and didn’t find them all that spellbinding.  But these were interesting stories about mothers – a wide variety.  The first one was a collection of bizarre phone messages left by a Mom – “I’m worried about the size of the phone you just bought, its too small, and you might swallow it, give me a call”.  Another story discussed a black Grandmother raising her white daughter-in-law’s daughter.  Yet another story tells of a last Thanksgiving two sisters share with their dying mother.  A last tale talks about an elderly Mom slowly loosing her memories (told from the grandson’s perspective).
