“I don’t know the mother’s reason. But the girl shouldn’t stay at her house, not another minute. I’ll send her to the provincial hospital so you can examine her and take care of her.”
 
“Send her to me right away.

What’s her name?”
 
“The girl’s name is Piengta.”
 
Winner of the Chommanard Book Prize, Suffering Mother tells the stories of 20 mothers through the eyes of the author, an obstetrician. The author’s patients are known by the names of various plants. The author’s long-deceased mother is “Jasmine”. From a mother’s greatest sacrifice to abortions and domestic violence, Suffering Mother dissects what it means to be a mother. Provocative, insightful, and deeply therapeutic.
 
“Highly readable … a fascinating work of psychoanalysis.”
