A cool surprise today! THE NASIONA has done a podcast on daughterhood that features four essays, including my short essay "My Mother's Suitcases": Episode 9, "On Daughterhood."
Here's what they say about "My Mother's Suitcases": "Jacqueline Doyle juggles feelings of remorse and acrimony for her mother, during a strained phone conversation with her. This piece is an incisive examination of the ways mothers and daughters often engage in exchanges fraught with tension, exchanges that sometimes take on a more bittersweet connotation, with the benefit of retrospection and indulgence."
Many thanks to editors Aïcha Martine Thiam and Julián Esteban Torres López!
