Eleanor‘s mother is far from #Maternal !!! Just horrible!!

“Oh yes,” she said, and I heard her dismissive sideways hiss of cigarette smoke. “It was just that I wanted to tell you that you‘re a pointless waste of human tissue. That was all. Bye then, darling!” she said, bright as a knife.”

Malorie may have a strange way of showing it, but she is the ultimate Mama Bear. Everything she does, no matter how cruel it seems, is to keep her children safe.

Eggs Perfect 👌🏼 2y

Even when a daughter is on the opposite side of the world, her mother still worries over her.

I‘ve met both women and they‘re extraordinary!

Nanny Ogg is a (strangely) #maternal character.

Day 23: Can't say too much about the character of Kitty's mother in this book because *spoilers*, but she's not very #maternal.

In the tagged book Doyle examines how women have been represented in culture, often as “monsters“ & “bad mothers“ & goes onto discuss the liberating impulse of embracing the “ferocity“ of these figures. I have been meaning to read Doyle for years now & reading the blurbs on this one, it sounds flippin' fantastic. #maternal #maycharacters @Eggs @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks

vivastory “Sady Doyle has redrawn the lines in the cultural sand with Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers. Combining history, folklore, true crime, personal anecdotes and horror films Doyle has written a book that redefines the female experience, emboldening, empowering and expanding it beyond its preconceived confines. Beautifully written, devastatingly funny, and exhaustively researched Dead Blondes and Bad Mothers is a deeply necessary and urgent book.“-A.West 2y

This book is witty and clever. Norris‘s mom is the coolest kind of #maternal : subtle but affectionate, firm but also on the same page as her son; i.e, she can empathize well. #maycharacters @Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks
