Summary
  • To those in her Cape Cod town, Mother is an exemplar of piety, frugality, and hard work. To her husband and seven children, she is a selfish, petty tyrant. She excels at playing her offspring against each other. Her favorite, Angela, died in childbirth; only Angela really understands her, she tells the others. The others include the officious lawyer, Fred; the uproarious professor, Floyd; a pair of inseparable sisters whose devotion to Mother has consumed their lives; and JP, the narrator, a successful writer whose work she disparages. As she lives well past the age of one hundred, her brood struggles with and among themselves to shed her viselike hold on them. Mother Land is a piercing portrait of how a parent's narcissism impacts a family. While the particulars of his tale are unique, Paul Theroux encapsulates with acute clarity and wisdom a circumstance that is familiar to millions of readers
  • Para los habitantes de Cape Cod, madre es un ejemplo de piedad, austeridad y trabajo duro. Para su marido y sus siete hijos, es egoísta, a veces mezquina, siempre tirana y disfruta enfrentándolos entre sí. Angela, su favorita que murió en el parto, es la única capaz de entenderla, según dice a los demás. Entre estos se incluyen Fred, un abogado de oficio; Floyd, un divertido profesor; un par de inseparables hermanas cuya devoción por la figura materna ha consumido sus vidas, y JP, el narrador, un escritor de éxito cuyo trabajo menosprecia. Tierra madre es un punzante retrato del impacto que el narcisismo materno puede tener en una familia, un cautivador, doloroso y a menudo divertido relato sobre una gran familia que discute, conspira, se confabula y finalmente vence los dolorosos lazos que la unen
