Things My Mother Taught Me features stories of high profile mothers, and high profile people, reflecting on their own relationship with their mothers. From young actors, television personalities and older intellectuals to a famous chef, a fashion designer, a comedian, and many more.
It is a book about all the stuff mothers know (or don't know) and how that knowledge and the ability to share it - for good and bad - helps to shape a person. Through funny and poignant interviews this book looks as at one of the most important relationships in everybody's lives and reveals much about the evolving nature of family in modern Australia.
