She sighs as she starts to pleat her skirt. 'Old age ain't no place for sissies, Willa,' I tell her. 'Bette Davis said that.' Willa looks into infinity, across the length of her days. 'What's happening to me?' The question is a complete throwback to clarity, sanity. 'You've got a serious memory problem,' I say, wanting it to sound like Asian flu - not too grave, certainly not irreversible. Though it is. But Willa has already lost interest. - from The Seamstress *** In this fourth novel in the acclaimed New Writing series, Jo narrates the story of her strong, passionate mother, Willa, whose gradual slide into dementia shifts them into a new and difficult relationship. Infused with abundant warmth and wry humor, The Seamstress is a memorable tale of friendship and love between women.
