This was supposed to be a book about a typical caregiver – a daughter with children of her own trying to help her terminal if eccentric weirdo-mother through a final year. But now here we were mid-narrative, more than a year gone by, and no one had died and I didn't have a mother anymore and the semester was wrapping up.
