Our Mother's Hair

Kate Pullinger
2009 Studies in the Maternal  
After my mother died last year, my three siblings and I spent time together, something that, as adults, we had never really done before. There's a big age gap between my siblings and me; they are ten, fourteen, and sixteen years older than me. My eldest sister left home when I was six months old. They were all married by the time I was nine. And the four of us live hundreds, in some cases thousands, of miles apart. British Columbia, Nova Scotia, England.
