A fascinating look at how mothers and their adult daughters have
formed a greater friendship than generations past-and whether or
not there should be boundaries.
No relationship is more complicated than the one between mothers
and daughters- especially today, when a cultural shift can cause a
longer period of time of overlapping interests before the
traditional adult markers of marriage and family. As a result,
these young women are developing deeper bonds with their own
mothers, a relationship that sometimes mimics friendship. But are
these close bonds healthy? Is it time to cut the umbilical cord?
In this eye-opening book, Linda Perlman Gordon and Susan Morris
Shaffer explore the modern mother-daughter relationship in all its
glorious complexity. Combining a brilliant sociological analysis
with fascinating stories of real- life women, "Too Close for
Comfort?" provides a rich, provocative look at the ways mothers and
daughters get it right, how they get it wrong-and how they can
happily maintain being friends as well as mothers and daughters.
