My Mother My Mirror
by Andrea Kitt

How complicated, the mother daughter dance: what indignance and fury, softness, and soul-wrenching longing. How hard we try to be different, and how hard we try to be the same. Yet in the end, whether your mother has been jealous and critical, humble and kind, or painfully absent, there will come a day when you look in the mirror and see her looking back at you.

Andrea was the first child: the survivor of seven miscarriages, the answer to her parents’ dreams, and the carrier of their pain, confusion, naivete and fear. As a child she hid: in silence, in her own imagination, in a semi-numbness in which she tried not to feel anything much at all. The journey out of this hiding place was shameful, ecstatic, tragic, hilarious and wonderful . . .

She explored psychedelic drugs, danced in a strip club, worshipped an Indian god, and fell in love again and again. She screamed at inner demons, swam in coral seas, climbed mountains, and gave birth to two beautiful children. And behind all this runs the story of how the challenging relationship with her mother has shaped her life.
