I do not think that stories of mothers and daughters are easy to tell.
How could they be?
All the growth, change, love, conflict, and emotion wrapped up into one little thing – it’s a wonder something like that does not bust at the seams.

This is especially true of a mother and
They can have such similar personalities and a wide spectrum of emotional expectations and needs.
I have other thoughts on Loop Group.
This was a novel called Terms of Endearment—for long my favorite among my many fictions. I have come to like a later book, Duane’s Depressed, just as much and maybe more, but Terms of Endearment still seems like my most mature fiction. It’s the story of a mother and a daughter, a subject that has always fascinated me. And Terms is the ripest fruit of this fascination, although the little-read Loop Group is also pretty good on mothers and their girls.
