From the Flyleaf:...... Last time you see someone and you don't know it will be the last time. And all that you know now, if only you'd known then. But you didn't know, and now it's too late. And you tell yourself. How could I have known. I could not have known.
You tell yourself.

This is my story of missing my mother. One day, in a way unique to you, it will be your story too.

From Joyce Carol Oates comes this candid, intimate, engaging, and new personal new novel.

In MISSING MOM, 31-year-old Nikki Eaton, single, sexually liberated and economically self-supporting, a young woman who never particularly thought of herself as a daughter, learns to cope with the unexpected loss of her mother over the course of a tumultous year of mourning that brings sorrow, illumination, wisdom, and even, from an unexpected source, a nurturing love.
