The mum by Jason Hazeley by Joel Morris
This book is the latest in the series of Ladybird books which have been specially planned to help grown-ups with the world about them.

An affair with my mother: a story of adoption, secrecy and love by Caitriona Palmer
A moving and gripping story of love, denial and a daughter’s quest for the truth.

Incontinent on the continent: my mother, her walker, and our grand tour of Italy by Jane Christmas
To honour a promise to her dying father, Jane takes her ageing incontinent mother to Italy. What could possibly go wrong? Jane Christmas had always had a difficult relationship with her mother, but thought that a mother and daughter trip to Italy could be the start of a whole new friendship. In this hilarious but poignant memoir, she discovers that it will not be that easy.

The Bridge Ladies: a memoir by Betsy Lerner
This absorbing memoir by literary agent and author Lerner (The Forest for the Trees) is about the game of bridge, but it’s also about bridging gaps-both the generational gap and the “personal gulf” that had defined Lerner’s relationship with her mother.

Beyond the high blue air: a memoir by Lu Spinney
This searingly honest, beautifully crafted memoir is a testament to the fierce power of maternal love.

Bettyville: a memoir by George Hodgman
Big-time magazine editor leaves New York City to care for his ailing yet feisty mother in their old-timey Midwestern hometown. The premise sounds like fodder for a laugh-track sitcom. Hodgman’s gorgeously constructed memoir, however, couldn’t be further from a pat Hollywood confection.

Where memories go: why dementia changes everything – now with a new chapter by Sally Magnusson
Scottish BBC journalist Magnusson writes movingly and beautifully about her love for her mother, Mamie Magnusson, a journalist who struggled as Alzheimer’s robbed her of her memory and her gift with words.
