Summary Oh no, I'm turning into my mother! Every woman is familiar with the poignant, funny, baffling, or horrifying echoes that resonate at that moment when she first hears her own mother's voice coming out of her mouth. But this moment of recognition is more than ironic: it's at the root of how we see ourselves, and how we plot and follow the arc that goes from childhood to motherhood. Together, Perri Klass and her mother, Sheila Solomon Klass, cover more than seven decades of daughterhood and motherhood. And although they grew up in dramatically different circumstances, they find that their lives have been shaped in strangely similar ways. Sheila grew up in Brooklyn in the 1920s, a child of the city, of the Depression, and of an orthodox Jewish home where a girl's education was considered unnecessary. She took a job as a live-in babysitter in order to be the first person in her family to go to college, and went on to become a professor of English and a working mother.
