The Year My Mother Came Back
Algonquin Books
Publication Date: March 31, 2015

Thirty years after her death, Alice’s mother appears to her, seemingly in the flesh, and continues to do so during the hardest year of parenting Alice has had to face. As it turns out, it’s entirely possible for the people we’ve lost to come back to us when we need them the most. Although letting her mother back into her life is not an easy thing, Alice navigates it with humor, intelligence, and honesty. What she learns is that she must revisit her childhood and allow herself to be a daughter once more in order to take care of her own girls. Alice needs to walk in her mother’s shoes in order to understand her and forgive her, and rediscover her love for her. In this compelling story of mothers lost and found, Alice finds her mother and rediscovers herself as a mother, finally able to accept her own imperfections.

A love story. A ghost story. Alice’s memoir is a contemporary tale that reaches back through the generations. This book will speak to anybody who has ever loved their mother, struggled with their mother, lost their mother, or dreamt of reconciling with their mother.

Julie Metz, author of the New York Times bestselling memoir, Perfection, interviewed Alice Eve Cohen about her upcoming book, The Year My Mother Came Back. It was the sort of conversation only two friends can have about mothers and daughters and what it means to be both. It’s the sort of conversation you’ll have with friends after reading The Year My Mother Came Back.
