Lynne Tillman, award-winning author and UAlbany English Professor/Writer-in-Residence, presents her new book, MOTHERCARE: On Obligation, Love, Death, and Ambivalence (2022), an unflinching account of the painful experience of becoming caregiver to a very difficult parent. The Boston Globe said, “Masterfully-wrought . . . [A] stunning story of caregiving, with its questions of obligation and ethics and what it means to care for someone who, perhaps, didn’t care for you.”
Her previous books include the novel, No Lease on Life (1998), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award, and What Would Lynne Tillman Do? (2014), a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award in Criticism.
