Robin Romm's arresting and resonant stories take on the fundamental themes of the human condition: mortality, loyalty, and love. In fresh and irreverent prose, Romm captures the moments before and after loss, mining the depths of grief with wit and grace. The stories in The Mother Garden are at once vividly realistic and infused with the bizarre - a man uses a chicken egg to test whether he is ready for fatherhood; a daughter plants a garden of mothers to replace her own; a family's ghosts literally fall through the ceiling, disrupting daily life; a woman finds her father sleeping in the desert after twenty-six years of living without him. People stumble in relationships, start families, struggle with illness, learn to mourn - and as in life, these acts are consuming, magical, and disorienting. Sharply funny and deeply moving, this extraordinary collection introduces a young writer of fierce originality and prodigious talent.
