Mother’s Day Picks from Chevalier’s Books

Happy Mother’s Day from Chevalier’s Books!

Does your mom love books?  We love recommending books. LizPicks  for the maternal holiday:

STORIES OF MOTHERHOOD, edited by Diana Secker Tesdell is another Everyman Pocket Classics format, a collection of short stories about motherhood. By authors from Willa Cather to Lydia Davis, it is a perfect gift.







ARE YOU MY MOTHER? A Comic Drama by Alison Bechdel

A graphic memoir about her mother by a well known cartoonist, this book is for the intellectual mom who’s into psychoanalysis and a different take on mother-daughter relationships.






ARE YOU MY MOTHER? by  P.D. Eastman

The classic childrens’ book about the bird who falls from the nest and goes on a search for its mother.  Good for kids and moms.






PLEASE LOOK AFTER MOM by Kyung-sook Shin

A bestseller in Korea, this book was originally recommended to me by a Korean customer who read it in her native language. It’s a very moving book, told in 4 voices – the daughter, the son, the husband, and the missing mother herself.






The book begins in 1913 Vienna, home of Dr. Freud and psychoanalysis and segueways into a fascinating WWI espionage thriller.  Fluidly written page turner by a brilliant English author.






Stop in and find these and more at your independent local neighborhood bookstore.
